Birmingham bin workers in Unite and Unison local government unions have agreed a deal to end the ongoing dispute which is to be ratified by Birmingham council's cabinet on 15 March.

As previously reported, this is related to payments to other workers who worked during the dispute in 2017. There are other issues outstanding and strikes will continue if the cabinet backtracks.

Unite assistant general secretary Howard Beckett said: "For the first time there is a deal on the table which meets our members' expectations, it is now imperative that Birmingham council's cabinet signs up to the deal."
