TWU NT: Cleanaway workers fight for better wages

Palmerston garbage workers ditched their uniforms today in protest for better wages and safer working conditions.

About 25 Cleanaway truck drivers gathered at the Holtz warehouse on Friday morning for a protected industrial action that would stop them from working 24 hours a day.

All workers voted in favor of this action last month.

It is estimated that 4,000 homes will be affected by the garbage collection disruption.

“These brave workers are rising up and taking action against Cleanaway’s all-out assault on safe working conditions and fair wages,” said a Facebook post from the Transport Workers’ Union.

“They just want a fair deal. We don’t want to set them back and make our workplaces and our roads safer.”

Cleanway has been contacted for comment.
