Ballot of tanker drivers to close

Issue No. 2295

Tanker drivers in the Unite union are being balloted for strike action. Voting is set to close on Monday next week.

The ballot covers over 2,000 workers in seven major fuel distribution firms. The dispute is over attempts to slash drivers’ terms and conditions.

A strike by drivers could have an enormous impact, cutting off supplies to petrol pumps and airports. Drivers should vote yes to strikes.
