Crunch talks are set to take place on Monday (17th January 2022) between Carmarthenshire road gritters and the local authority on Monday. 

The talks take place after Gritting staff downed tools on the 5th and 6th January. 

Further dates are expected next week between 18th and 21st and again between 24th and 28th January.

Unless agreement is reached, it could mean that Carmarthenshire's road network remains ungritted for two weeks.

The dispute follows on from action taken two years ago that saw the introduction of the comprehensive collective agreement between the union and the authority.    

Peter Hill, GMB regional organiser said: 

“We’re pleased the council has come back to the table. 

“Let’s be clear, the council can resolve this dispute by honouring the agreements that they already signed with us two years ago.
