11 days of rubbish strike meant rubbish strewn streets.

The strike is over. An agreement has been reached and the big clean-up has started. Malaga residents can breathe a sigh of relief as the rubbish strewn streets are at last to be cleaned. The Limasa Malaga waste collection company workers union has reached an agreement with Malaga Local Government in order to end with the strike after 11 days. The agreement was reached on March 11. 

The agreement reached now states that the Limasa staff will have every weekend off instead of working on Sundays with another randomly assigned day off during the week. Regarding holidays, they will now have 15 days of holidays over the summer and another 21 days to split through the rest of the year. Moreover, the Limasa workers will earn the same salary whilst on sick leave, including the extra pay for night shift. In addition, the agreement includes a productivity bonus. 

The agreement met almost the 100 per cent of the demands by the Limasa workers when they went on strike. Now business as usual.
