Fuel Tanker Drivers' Strike
27 March 2012
The cost of fuel could increase even further due to a strike by fuel tanker drivers. The timing could cause disruption over the Easter break with many garages having to close when the supply of fuel runs out. This could also have a knock on effect to supermarkets and retailers alike.
The Government has put the Army on standby in an attempt to keep essential supplies moving and are appealing to Union leaders to return to negotiations after they walked away from discussions when talks broke down.
