Sandwell refuse collectors have voted to suspend industrial action following emergency talks. 

More than 100 workers were on strike today – the first of twelve strike days across the Christmas period at Serco Sandwell. 

Refuse collectors voted to strike following public safety concerns at the Household Recycling Centre on Shidas Lane, Sandwell. 

Justine Jones, GMB Organiser said: 

“Following last ditch talks with Serco, GMB members have voted to suspend industrial action with immediate effect as a gesture of good faith. 

“We will now enter into further talks with the company. 

“However GMB members stand ready to strike across Christmas and New Year if the talks break down.”
