Local ballot result announced

Appears that the ongoing bin dispute is just that - ongoing ... and certainly not successfully resolved ...

... all somewhat further confirmed by the ballot-result of the Unite workforce, which is out this afternoon - two questions were asked:

1. Are you prepared to take part in strike action?

YES - 67.9%
NO - 32.1%

2. Are you prepared to take part in industrial action short of a strike?

YES - 93.5%
NO - 6.5%

Of course, such action does not have to automatically follow if a negotiated settlement can still be reached meantime --- but the results above clearly indicate the current feelings of the local workforce.
