Strikes by 150 Suez workers, who empty bins on behalf of South Gloucestershire council, will be suspended for three days from Monday (31 July) following an improved offer from the company.

The workers, who are members of Unite, the UK’s leading union, will now be balloted on the new offer. 

If the offer is rejected, strikes will begin again on Thursday 3 August.

Unite regional officer Ken Fish said: “As an act of goodwill our members have agreed to suspend strike action while they are balloted on the new offer.”
