The CBI have commented on the announcement by the Unite union that fuel tanker drivers in the oil industry plan to strike over terms and conditions

John Cridland, CBI Director-General, said:

“This vote should disappoint us all. Disruption is in nobody’s interest at this critical moment in the recovery.

“Our roads are vital for the health of our economy, delivering 83 per cent of all goods in the UK, and 70 per cent of employees to work.

“Drivers have voted for a strike, but each employer and Unite should now get back around the table to discuss the issues raised. Going ahead with strike action would have a real impact on people across the country.”
