Has there been a wild­cat strike by bin crews?

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

Yes­ter­day morn­ing, nei­ther of the large trade unions, Unite or Uni­son, were aware of the is­sue. Clr Musar­rat Khan, cab­i­net mem­ber re­spon­si­ble, told the Ex­am­iner an in­ves­ti­ga­tion had been launched. She said she could not say more un­til they had es­tab­lished what had hap­pened. She said: “A small num­ber of staff did not com­plete their day’s work and so caused dis­rup­tion to the ser­vice and to res­i­dents. “This meant a num­ber of grey bins were not col­lected in Holme Val­ley and green bins were missed in the Colne Val­ley area. “Those staff are now be­ing taken through our own in­ter­nal pro­cesses. “Teams are out work­ing as nor­mal to­day and col­lec­tions will be caught up and back to nor­mal in the next cou­ple of days.”
