Republic/Alliied trash collection to be caught up today, company says

Published: Sun, March 31, 2013 @ 12:06 a.m.

Staff report


Doug Dunn, general manager of Republic Services/ Allied Waste, said Saturday his company will work through the day today to get caught up on trash collections delayed by a strike by workers.

The strike, which involves 103 Youngstown workers, began Thursday. The company brought in nonunion employees and supervisors from other regional divisions to collect trash. The trash for some Republic Services/Allied Waste customers has remained at the curb for several days.

The company has more than 100,000 customers in the Mahoning Valley and in Pennsylvania.

In a press release, Dunn said the average Republic Services/Allied Waste landfill worker on strike makes $43,000.

Drivers who walked out in support of the landfill workers earn an average of $53,000, Dunn said, adding that some earn more than $85,000.

Wow, Dunn is spinning, and the Vindicator lets him do it. Why doesn't Dunn reveal what the starting wages are? He's only too happy to reveal what the top wage-earners make. Fair and impartial treatment requires BOTH extremes to be told, not just the one that's politically useful to one's agenda.

And if Dunn is so eager to reveal those "shocking" numbers, why doesn't he mention what HE makes?

I'll bet it's a lot more than that $85K he floats out there, as if they're doing something wrong in order to earn that much money.

NoBS There are things wrong in your post. Dunn isn't on strile and why should he tell you what he earns. Its always true that mgnt makes more. . If it wasn't who would like to take care of all the details that they have. If anyone is spinning, its the union, trying to show they have power. But as you can see they don't. The company has brought in non-union workers who are doing the job for them. Secondly what's wrong with trying to save your employees pensions? The fund they are in is going BROKE! Other company drivers have taken the 401 plan and are working and earning a decent wage while these guys are getting NOTHING!
