Refuse collectors in Barrow have announced six more days of industrial action in their fight for a living wage. 

GMB members working FCC Environment will walk out on from 30 March to 1 April and then 6 to 8 April. 

More than three quarters of the work force voted to strike.

Michael Hall, GMB Organiser, said:  

“All these refuse collectors want is a wage they can live on. 

“We’re face the biggest fall in living standards in fifty years – since the days of rationing. 

“GMB members at FCC we a modest pay rise so they don’t have to choose between putting the heating on and feeding their families. 

"FCC bosses can stop these strikes before they cause havoc for the people of Barrow - just offer these keyworkers the pay rise they deserve."
