Spain - Seville garbage strike ends -February 08, 2013

A weeklong strike of garbage collectors came to an end as an agreement was reached over pay cuts. The garbage collectors went on strike on 27 January, as the local government announced a 5% pay cut and 2.5 hour extension of working time. The garbage collectors walked off work, pointing at not having received a pay rise since 2008 and therefore already being worse off, leading garbage to pile up across the city. Under the agreement reached, the workers accept a 3.5% wage cut.
