Bin collections in Birmingham are expected to be disrupted today because of a strike by refuse collectors and street cleaners.
Around sixty members of the Unite Union are refusing to work overtime this week and will also stop working for four hours today.
Workers are unhappy over new terms and conditions, as well as the way council is using agency staff, rather than employing people permanently.
Birmingham City Council have said they have held talks with representatives from Unite, but have not been able to reach an agreement over terms and conditions for staff.
Further strike action is expected to take place this Friday (15 August).
