Bosses sack six oil tanker drivers

Issue No. 2293

Six oil tanker drivers working out of Grangemouth oil refinery were sacked on Tuesday of last week. This was the day that the Unite union announced a national strike ballot of tanker drivers.

The six worked for Norbert Dentressangle delivering fuel to Tesco. Unite says it believes the firm sacked them because of their union membership.

The ballot over “unrelenting attacks” on conditions covers more than 2,000 drivers.
