Denmark -Garbage collectors strike -April 27, 2015

Binmen seek more guarantees against lay-offs and refuse to sign contracts with City Renovation, who won a tender for rubbish management: workers.

Rubbish collectors in Copenhagen are on strike and the trash is piling up. The binmen are refusing to sign contracts with City Renovation, who won a tender for rubbish management in the capital, replacing the former contract holder. The workers are asking for more guarantees, as they fear to be laid off. The strike has affected the entire capital and covers all types of waste collection, from bulky and garden waste to household waste. Negotiations between the trade union 3F, representing the rubbish collectors, and the waste-management company, City Renovation, are ongoing.  If the conflict parties can’t reach an agreement, City Renovation probably will lose the contract with the municipality.
