Birmingham bin men win High Court jobs battle with Birmingham City CouncilBIN men fighting for jobs in the wake of a dispute which has led to piles of rubbish being left in Birmingham streets have won a High Court battle.

The Court case has come about over the timing of the redundancy notices rather than in favour of the bin men's demands per se.

They were guaranteed by Mr Clancy that there would be no redundancies & so went back to work whilst still ironing out the details of the terms & working hours & then the Council issued redundancy notices anyway, saying Mr Clancy hadn't got the authority to make those kinds of deals.

The strike may be off, for now, but once the trial has been & gone, they will still need to go back to the drawing board about working patterns & staffing levels.  I suspect that we'll have a new round of strikes once the court case is done.
