Industrial action by workers protesting against Serco in Bexley borough appears to be off after an agreement was struck.
Staff have voted for the deal and are awaiting ratification from Serco.
Serco have already lost the contract, though refuse collectors have won some concessions.
According to Unite, “The deal includes a one off £750 payment for 19 staff, contract changes that will reduce pay disparities and steps to prevent the weaponization of the drug and alcohol policy.”
Low pay has been an issue with workers complaining of not receiving the London Living Wage under Serco.
