Outdoor workers face toilet troubles due to Government spending cuts, says union report


Workers who spend their day outside are facing increasing problems in finding a toilet because Government spending cuts have led to many facilities being closed, a new union report has warned.

Unison said transport workers, postmen and women, police community support officers and refuse collectors are among those affected. The union has also highlighted difficulties faced by call centre workers having access to toilets, or being given enough time to use them.
