SUEZ has temporarily negotiated an outcome with UNISON officials

A proposed bin strike by workers in Calderdale, West Yorkshire over a pay dispute with SUEZ has been called off temporarily.

Around 95% of UNISON members voted in favour of the strike action against SUEZ.

According to the Halifax Courier, lowest paid bin loaders currently earned £7.93 per hour- 10p above the minimum wage.

Yet if these employees were paid by the Council, they would be earning a Living Wage rate of £8.75.

A SUEZ spokesperson, which runs the services on behalf of Calderdale Council, said: “We have reached a negotiated outcome with officials at UNISON and the planned strike action on Monday 3 December and Tuesday 4 December has been called off.

“We are pleased to confirm that all waste and recycling collection services will be operating as normal. The revised offer will be put to members next week.”
