Jon Cruddas intervenes to try and bring rubbish chaos to an end

Apr 15, 2015

Jon Cruddas has approached ACAS to help bring the current dispute between Barking and Dagenham Council led by Cllr Rodwell and workers represented by the GMB union in the council's refuse collection service to an end.

The dispute is over the imposition of wage cuts to staff carrying out Health and Safety checks on vehicles.

Speaking to the Post, Jon Cruddas called on all parties to this week sit down with ACAS and hammer out a solution which restores a full service to all residents and avoids any more strikes.

On Thursday 19th March Jon Cruddas MP for Dagenham & Rainham held a candle lit vigil at the Dagenham Civic Centre in a bid to protect the building which is in danger of falling victim to the cuts.

Hundreds of local residents gathered on the steps of Dagenham’s Civic Centre to make a stand against the proposal to turn the historic 1937 art deco monument into a school.
