Unite reports “heavy handed policing” of the strike by refuse workers in Bexley, South East London, over the living wage, pay progression and back pay.
Unite’s Ruth Hydon says: “We want to be very clear to the police that their heavy-handed approach to a perfectly legal picket must stop. Our members have a right to withhold their labour and picket their workplace and it is simply not acceptable for the police to intimidate them.”
The strikers and their supporters will rally on Wednesday 21 July at Bexley Civic Offices, 2 Watling Street, Bexleyheath DA6 7AT, from 6pm. See you there!
