Spain - Striking garbage collectors come to an agreement - March 31, 2016

Workers at Limasa, the company in charge of Malaga’s rubbish collection service, have been striking for nine days. They were protesting plans to cut annual holiday leave as well as calling for all the conditions of the employment agreed upon in 2010 (the last time conditions were validated) to be reinstated. The City Hall had rejected the proposals from the Limasa workers and sent them a counter-offer, which included the stipulations that the workers must not strike in 2016 and 2017 and do away with the practice of hereditary job positions within the company. After long negotiations a deal was concluded that includes a productivity bonus and a retroactive pay due for last September.
