The Chief Executive officer of the Newry, Mourne & Down District Council has been branded as ‘selfish’ after she refused to yield to workers concerns as industrial action now looms we can reveal.
Marie Ward who it is alleged will be at her private villa in Spain while up to 1000 council workers strike for wages negotiated for over 5 years ago.
One local bin man told us:
“I think Mrs Ward looks at us as if we are shit on the bottom of her foot. I am not a bin man I am actually a “waste management and disposal technician” and only for me and the rest of the crews every one of you would be living in fifth and squalor.
We are still holding out against hope that Mrs Ward will relent and give us our fair dues but at this rate it is looking like we will be on strike all day on the 7th of December.”
