Waste workers locked out by employer

Ireland
Workers employed by the Greyhound waste and recycling company have been locked out by management for over two months. The company is attempting to force workers to accept wage cuts of up to 35% and has employed strikebreakers to carry out waste collections during the dispute. SIPTU has 80 members in the company which has a contract to collect household waste for Dublin City Council. Solidarity is being provided by trade unions and messages of support have been sent by EPSU and EPSU affiliates.
