The Struggle Against The Bin Tax Escalates in Dublin

"The battles are over; now the war begins."
The initial battles are over and now finally the war has begun. After being beaten on every front and with non-payment still remaining very high, Fingal council became the first one to try and implement their new tactic of non-collection of the rubbish. This is something they've had to wait to implement because it took new laws to be railroaded though the dail for them to be able to start this withdrawal of services.
In the City area there has been "Lobbies" of some depots as it's expected that the council will attempt non-collection here very soon. The idea behind the lobbying the bin-workers in the depots is that it gives them a chance to holding meetings with the authorities at which they can voice their concerns about this policy. SIPTU already have a position which states they are against the bin tax. However we shouldn't rely or put pressure on the workers. Ultimately our fight is with the City manager and with the bean counters and government who are pushing us towards paying more and more in these stealthy double taxes.
