Tanker drivers vote to strike

Tanker drivers vote to strike
Around 2,000 fuel tanker drivers have voted "overwhelmingly" to strike, the Unite union says.

Results of a strike ballot showed 61% of all drivers across seven involved firms voted "Yes" to strike action, on a 77% turnout.

Strikes will go ahead at five out of the seven involved firms, and within these firms going ahead with industrial action, 67% of drivers voted to strike.

The drivers are taking industrial action over their contractual terms and conditions and safety standards at work.

Unite drivers supply 90% of the UK's forecourts and the union says a strike could close up to 7,900 petrol stations.
