UPDATE: Tanker drivers head back to work
2013-09-27 07:51:24 | (0 Comments)
Tanker drivers represented by the National Workers Union (NWU) are to go back to work today following protest action yesterday.
The approximately 200 drivers withdrew their service for most of yesterday.
The tanker drivers are reportedly upset that the Petroleum Haulage Contractors are yet to agree to a new contract with them.
NWU President Vincent Morrison says the contract ended in June but despite several meetings no progress has been made to arrive at an agreement.
Mr. Morrison says the tanker drivers only agreed to go back to work following the intervention of the Mining and Energy Minister yesterday.
He says a meeting has been called for next Wednesday when the absence of a new haulage contract and other matters in the sector will be discussed.
The NWU President says tanker drivers are eager to have the matter settled.
