Bin men striking for the first time in 17 years

For the first time in 17 years bin men in Sheffield have gone on strike. Around 40 thousand bins will not be collected throughout the city today as more than a hundred workers held a picket line outside lumley street street service centre this morning. The GMB union, which represents more than 95% of around 180 workers said that although they tried to avoid industrial action, the majority of members supported the decision. Sham went along to the picket line this morning where she spoke to Ian Butler ,the Shop Steward for GMB to find out more.
