UNISON Scottish secretary Lilian Mace joined waste services workers on picket lines today in Stirling.
Lilian said: ” Waste workers in Stirling and Perth & Kinross are leading our action for local government workers across Scotland. And if the Scottish government want to be a fair work nation by 2025 they need to start by paying local government workers a decent wage”
The action is a four day strike and is part of a wider dispute over the pay offer made to local government workers by COSLA earlier in the year. Strikes are disrupting bin collections and recycling across Stirling and Perth &Kinross.
30,000 school staff are also being balloted for strike action which could take place in September.
