Hull binmen threaten strike action over job cuts
BINMEN in Hull are threatening to take industrial action over cuts to their workforce.
The refuse workers, represented by Unison are in talks with Hull City Council over plans to make up to 36 workers redundant.
The council claims the move will help save £1m as it looks to make £33m of savings over the next two years.
However, Unison claims workers are already "cut to the bone" and could not take any more redundancies.
