Interesting to read that Councillor Majid Mahmood, Bin supremo , is already making a pre-emptive bid to explain the new Bin strike as happening because of Council secrecy on GMB payments. The issue is that payments were made to the non striking GMB members in the last bin strike and this has made Unite bosses and members very angry. So angry, that a work to rule is in place to start after Christmas.
Mahmood has asked for minutes to be released of meetings between GMB and the Council to try and find out what has been going on. Leader Ian Ward has yet to respond to him. Until these minutes are released, the suspicion that a secret deal took place , will remain.
