Who’s on strike today? Daily update for January 28 – Metro.co.uk

Legal advisers, bin workers and staff from a drinks supply company are all striking in yet another day of industrial action.
Workers are taking to the picket line in a bin for better pay and working conditions.
In the last month, nurses, doctors, ambulance drivers, rail workers, taxi drivers, civil servants, barristers and bus drivers have all taken industrial action.
It is the final day bin workers who are members of Unite union in Liverpool are striking.
The union said more than 70 workers who work in refuse collection, street cleaning and parks will take to the picket line.
Strikers are seeking a 4% pay rise, and an additional £1,000 to offset the cost of living crisis.
A LSSL spokesman said it was ‘surprised and disappointed’ at the move.
PCS members working in courts across England and Wales will strike again in a long-running dispute about a case management system called Common Platform.
PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka said: ‘As long as managers continue to ignore our members, our members will continue to resist the unworkable Common Platform system and fight for the integrity of the entire justice system.’
Workers at drinks giant Diageo are also walking out over money after the company lowered the rate of pay for new-starters without consulting unions.
Unite estimates some of its members could lose 6% of their pay.
Diageo has previously said the action only involves 10 people.
