Indefinite strike by street cleaners in Madrid

The 6,000 employees of the gardens and cleaning services in Madrid have begun an indefinite strike in protest at plans by the concessionary companies to lay off as many as 1,135 workers.

Union representatives rejected an offer by the companies, of which there are four, to reduce the number of lay-offs to 945 provided the difference is made up by salary cuts.

The minimum services established by the City are 40 percent for street workers and staff of the Emergency Cleaning Service (Selur) and 25 percent for the maintenance of gardens, playgrounds and street furniture.
