Strike back on at Sheffield ‘dump it’ sites - Green Scene - The Star
In all my 40 years in employment I have never been in a union or felt the need to go on strike. I do however, fully support the men employed by SOVA at the recycling sites. Under the conditions there work they do an excellent job.
My beef is with Sheffield City Council, Veolia and SOVA, where there is too much management involvement, which reduces the amount of money in the budget for the front line workforce.
To have 3 management structures is ridiculous, SCC should take back in house, they could not do a worse job and more money would be available for the front line. Also SCC would not be looking to make a profit for shareholders, as is the case for Veolia and SOVA, which again reduces the pot of money.
Do not go on a brewery trip organised by any of the 3 organisations.
