Amgen Cymru recycling firm staff contracts 'absurd'

Fresh concerns have been raised about employment practices at a council-owned recycling company.

The GMB union has claimed agency workers at Amgen Cymru, an arm's-length waste management firm near Aberdare, Rhondda Cynon Taff, have been told to sign "absurd" contracts.

It also claimed agency Smart Solutions Ltd previously paid staff less than the minimum wage and called for it to lose its contract.

Smart Solutions denied breaking rules.
