Recycling workers in the East Bay are protesting what they say is a rat infestation in their workplace.

Waste management employees at the San Leandro facility say they are coming in close contact with rodents every day. They say at least one employee has been bitten by a rat and they've notified Cal-OSHA.

Workers gathered in front of waste management headquarters in Oakland starting at 11 a.m. Wednesday with plans to continue their rally until 2 p.m.

It's the second protest in a week.
