Will there be any resolution to the fear surrounding a possible strike by Unite, the union representing fuel tanker drivers? In a recent report, Unite's assistant general secretary Diana Holland has indicated that there is need to make joint efforts to deal with the crisis in hands.
The government had warned people of potential strike which had irked the union recently, but it seems that government has no qualms about pressing the panic button among people.
Of late, there have been changes in the conditions and terms of the industry which has affected one and all. But, there is a need to ensure that corrective measures are being taken to avert the possible crisis.
"We want to put a floor in, under which no-one can fall. When the contract negotiations take place, we want the oil companies, the retailers, and the distribution companies to say no-one will fall below this standard", she said, while confirming that there have been many warnings given to government about the percolating issues.
There are expectations that the union and fuel distributors would meet later this week to reach at some solution, else there could be strike by tanker drivers in the future which can only make things worse.
