After coming to agreement with Thurrock Council, strike action proposed by Unite during the month of April has been called off. This is great news for residents as it means their waste service will now not be disrupted.
The council met with Unite again yesterday as part of the ongoing discussions. We addressed misunderstandings and clarified our intended usage of cameras with Unite – the council's position on their use has not changed since the start.
We are pleased that Unite's understanding of the position is now clear and that we can continue to provide these important services to our residents.
All our officers are valued by the council and we are pleased to have a reached this agreement.
