Refuse collection workers strike

Bin workers in Medway, Kent, walked out on 30 March over management's failure to follow social distancing directives, to provide adequate PPE and the closure of public toilets. The workers issued Section 44 notices (of the Employment Rights Act 1996 ) and stopped work. Talks are now underway with the employer Medway Norse to resolve the situation.
