Rubbish mounts up in Sevilla as refuse collectors strike over pay and working hours
By:

BINMEN are on strike in Sevilla and already over 4,500 tonnes of litter has built up in the street.

Rubbish collectors downed tools a week ago over plans to cut their wages by five per cent and change their working hours around.

Since then, 25 wheelie-bins in the city have been set fire to by people who disagree with the strikers' actions.

Leader of the union behind the strike, the labourers' commission (CCOO) Antonio Bazo says nobody from the city council has made any attempt to contact or negotiate with the refuse collection company.

Bazo stresses that the bin fires are nothing to do with the workers from the firm Lipasam which holds the franchise for picking up, disposing of and treating household and commercial waste in the city.

He calls Sevilla council and Lipasam's management 'irresponsible' for not attempting to negotiate the situation with workers and put a stop to rubbish mounting up in the streets.
