The local union leaders are hoping for a turnout of several hundred for the rally starting shortly at the Cenotaph. There are a range of issues which they are unhappy about ranging from low wages to poor working hours.
Throughout the afternoon there will be speakers from the union leaders as well as workers who are on the strike.





Many other council provided services are running as normal despite the action. Customer Services is open as usual, along with all parks, museums and libraries, although the mobile library will not be in operation this morning.


The council believe they will only be able to collect at about 10 per cent of homes they would normally collect at. Plans are being made to collect the rubbish at a later date but the council are restricted due to laws surrounding industrial action.


The hardest hit by today’s strike will be residents in Haydon Wick, Taw Hill, Abbey Meads and Moredon who are due to have their rubbish collected today.
