Málaga street-cleaners and refuse collectors to strike 'until further notice'
By:

STREET-CLEANING and rubbish collection workers in Málaga have announced an 'indefinite strike' starting Tuesday, March 1 over issues with working conditions and pay.

The partially public-sector-run firm Limasa had intended to down tools every Saturday from this coming weekend (February 20) and then strike 'until further notice from March 13, but they have brought forward the complete cessation of their duties by two weeks.

This means the Costa del Sol capital is likely to be full of litter and with bins overflowing for most of next month unless and until a solution can be found.

Company committee chair Manuel Belmonte says the fact that nearly every one of Limasa's 800 workers voted in favour of the strike 'shows how they are tired and fed up' with the situation.

He hopes it will make the city's environment councillor Raúl Jiménez 'sit up and take note'.

[Jiménez] does not work closely with our staff and never talks to them, which has become patently clear given that they have chosen to strike directly rather than start by downing tools once a week and then progress,” Belmonte announced.

The strike will affect all neighbourhoods in Málaga, not just the city centre, although the staff committee realises they may be expected by law to provide 'minimum services'.
