Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community

Tanker driver conciliation talks continue

05 April, 2012

Talks aimed at resolving the fuel tanker drivers dispute and keep threats of strike action at bay have continued for a second day.

Officials from the Unite union and seven distribution companies have been meeting under the chairmanship of the conciliation service Acas to reach a deal over drivers' terms and conditions and other issues such as health and safety.

The talks, held at an undisclosed location, were adjourned in the early hours of the morning but restarted this morning.
Acas chief conciliator Peter Harwood said: "Talks adjourned at 1am this morning. Talks will reconvene at 9am today."

Meanwhile Brian Madderson, RMIP chairman, doesn’t believe the dispute will be resolved before Easter.

“I would be surprised if Unite general secretary Len McCluskey yields today. If I was a betting man I would think the two sides would be unable to come to an agreement until after the Easter break.”
