Trash Strike Ends as Republic Services and Union Reach Agreement


The garbage haulers strike is over.

An agreement between sanitation company Republic Services and the Teamsters union representing its workers was reached Monday. The agreement ends the more than four week long strike that impacted trash service in Chula Vista and some parts of the city of San Diego.

Union representatives say that workers would receive a pay raise, with the rate going from $24.60 to $26.50.

Pay increases would occur over the next four years according to the union. A $1,000 bonus reportedly also is part of the agreement.

Trash service was expected to resume on Tuesday. The strike began on December 17th.
