United Kingdom -Truck drivers agree with ACAS brokered terms fuel distribution services -May 16, 2012

A small majority of 51% of truck drivers voted in favour of an ACAS brokered compromise in the fuel distribution sector that will be effective from 1 June. Majorities of drivers at DHL, Wincanton, Hoyer, and Turners voted against the proposals, while those at BP, Norbert Dentressangle, and JW Sucklings voted in favour. The compromise includes the introduction of an accreditation system called “Passport,” which cover health, safety and training and serves as a deterrent for distribution companies to use sub-contract workers to deliver fuel.
