New offer to tanker drivers worth 14%

New offer to tanker drivers worth 14%
THE deal aimed at ending the bitter fuel tanker drivers' dispute is worth around 14% over two years, it emerged yesterday.

THE deal aimed at ending the bitter fuel tanker drivers’ dispute is worth around 14% over two years, it emerged yesterday.

Hundreds of members of the Unite union will soon start voting on whether to accept the offer, which was worked out during all-day talks on Tuesday.

The agreement between union leaders and managers from two haulage companies which deliver fuel to Shell garages has averted further industrial action planned for this weekend.

The drivers, employed by Hoyer and Suckling, staged a four-day strike which ended at 6am on Tuesday, causing fuel shortages in parts of the UK.

It is believed that the deal is worth 9% in year one and a further 5% in year two will take the drivers’ basic pay to around £36,000.

But with overtime and other payments, their average earnings is expected to be almost £42,000 by the end of the second year.

The basic pay will be for a 48-hour week.

Union officials had pointed out that the drivers were on a basic wage of £32,000 for a 37-hour week in 1992.

Voting is expected to be completed by the end of the month.
