The Mayor Of Mijas has reached an agreement with striking refuse collectors on the Costa Del Sol.  They will return to work today, and continue working until the new council is installed on Friday.  Workers have been on strike for five days.

Budget Cuts

The refuse collectors from Urbaser are striking because of budget cuts.  The contract with Urbaser was cut by one million euros, meaning workers weren’t paid for overtime or bonuses.  They are also demanding an extra €1000 a year, and a more fairly structured working work.

Mijas Bin Strike

Over 200 tonnes of waste have built up during the strike.

Angel Nozal, Mayor of Mijas, has agreed with the workers to make their demands a high priority if  he is elected on the 5th July.  Bin collections will return to normal between now and then, when the workers will reconsider their position and discuss the possibility of more strike action.
