Birmingham bin workers have voted to accept the council deal. It means the long running dispute between the City Council and bin workers is now officially over.
The long-running dispute that saw rubbish piled high on the streets of Birmingham over the summer is on the brink of being settled. The City Council cabinet met earlier to ratify a new deal with workers, which would see them keep their jobs and stay on the same pay.
