Decrease Increase Text size

A trash strike continues Friday in Montgomery County. About 120 workers are refusing to pick up garbage.

Workers went door to door Thursday and told residents why they're not working.
They're upset about what they say are unfair wages and unaffordable health insurance.

The union says several workers have been threatened to lose their jobs if they don't walk away from the picket lines and get back in their garbage trucks.

Unity Disposal did release a statement saying the employees have always been provided with competitive wages and benefits.
