Further disruption to some Belfast City Council services due to strike action

Date: 21 Apr 2022

City Hall Belfast

Belfast City Council is advising residents that further industrial action is being planned by Unite the Union from Monday 25 April to Sunday 8 May inclusive (excluding 2 May).

The regional strike action will cause disruption to some Council services and is likely to have an impact on some waste collection and street cleansing routes, as well as other frontline services and council venues.

The majority of services are expected to operate as normal, or with minimal disruption, and Council is working hard to minimise the impact on residents and businesses.

All burial, cremation and death registration services will continue to operate as normal.

The regional strike action, which is planned across all Northern Ireland council areas and other public sector organisations, is in relation to 21/22 nationally agreed pay award. The pay and terms and conditions of employment of all UK local government workers, including Belfast City Council employees are determined by the National Joint Council for Local Government Services (NJC) at national level. There is no national dispute.

It is unlawful for employment agencies to supply labour to employers specifically for the purposes of covering work normally carried out by employees who are taking part in lawful industrial action. 

Residents are advised to keep up to date on the latest info via our social media channels and website –
