Hoyer Tanker Drivers Vote For Strike Action

Hoyer said it had a responsibility not to give its tanker drivers ‘unsustainable increases’ in their salary after the Unite union threatened strike action in a row over pay, writes Chris Tindall.

The logistics company said it had already made drivers at the Grangemouth oil terminal an offer in excess of 14% and their pay was already far in excess of UK average salary rates.

It added that negotiations were ongoing but that it was also working on contingency plans to avoid disruption to fuel supplies across Scotland if industrial action went ahead.

However, Unite said over 30 members employed by Hoyer Gas and Petroleum Logistics backed strike action by 100% on a 97% turnout, after the membership rejected a 7% pay offer.
