Refuse workers and street cleaners employed by Liverpool Streetscene Services Limited (LSSL), have suspended planned strike action, Unite, the UK’s leading union, said today (Thursday).

The more than 80 workers were scheduled to strike over pay on 10, 13, 16, 20, 21, 22, 23 and 24 March. 

The strikes have now been suspended to allow for constructive talks with LSSL’s management. 

Unite regional officer Brian Troake said: “Unite have today agreed to suspend the upcoming period of industrial action at LSSL to allow meaningful dialogue to continue with management. 

“Unite remain confident that we can reach a negotiated settlement and draw this dispute to a satisfactory conclusion. However, if the outcome of these meetings fail to meet our members’ aspirations, Unite will not hesitate in recommencing industrial action.”
