Trash collectors strike continues in Montgomery County

Posted: Updated:
A trash collectors strike in Montgomery County is expected to continue Thursday.

A meeting between the workers, their employers, and the laborers' union was called off on Wednesday.

The striking workers are demanding affordable health insurance and fair wages.

All of them are from two of three of the county's trash contractors - Potomac Disposal and Unity Disposal.

A group of workers from Potomac Disposal went on strike last month over claims the company paid some of its workers less than the living wage threshold.
