A pivotal group of oil tanker drivers who currently work for logistics company Exel delivering fuel for BP, is to vote on strikes in defence of their pension rights. Seventy five drivers, all members of the T&G union began balloting on Monday.

BP wants to end the final salary pension scheme when drivers transfer to the company next week. Ron Webb, T&G national secretary for transport says, “If a final salary scheme is it is good enough for BP chief Lord Browne, it’s good enough for our members.”

The ballot closes on 11 October.
