Granada becomes an open-air rubbish dump as street-cleaners go on strike

Granada becomes an open-air rubbish dump as street-cleaners go on strike: GRANADA city centre is knee-deep in rubbish due to a strike called by refuse collectors and road-sweepers.

They object to being forced to work extra hours – bringing them to a total of 37.5 a week – at the same time as their pay is being cut by five per cent and will be frozen thereafter for the foreseeable future, not increased in line with inflation.
