Montgomery County, Md., Trash Company Hires Untrained Temps During Strike

December 31, 2014

As striking trash haulers in Montgomery and Howard counties in Maryland head into the second week of their strike for fair wages and benefits, their employer, Unity Disposal, appears to have resorted to sending out temporary replacement workers as “helpers” without required safety equipment and perhaps without required safety training as well. Helpers are the workers who ride on the vehicles and heave garbage and recycling into the back of the trucks.

Support the striking trash haulers by calling Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett at 240-205-7176.
