Strike at tip halted

A SECOND day of strike action at Thornhill’s tip has been postponed.

Workers at the Weaving Lane site had planned a 24-hour strike for Wednesday following a walkout last week over allegations of bullying and intimidation by managing company Sita, which controls recycling sites on behalf of Kirklees Council.

But the strike was postponed while talks continue, though workers’ union Unite said another could take place on Monday if the issue was not resolved.

The action was sparked after one worker at a Kirklees depot said he had been locked in an office by his manager and other claims from staff.

Sita denies the claims, but has met Unite members and said it hopes for an amicable conclusion.
