Unite has secured a ground breaking pay and conditions deal for its members employed as fuel tanker drivers by Fuel Transport Logistics (FTL) on the Asda South contract.

Pay rise

A 100 tanker drivers have secured an additional 12.2 per cent in pay value following negotiations led by their union Unite.

In addition, FTL has agreed to move to a four on four off shift system, which means that workers will work 26 fewer shifts per year with no loss of pay. This mean that the deal over the last six months is in effect worth 25.7 per cent for members and resolves the pay dispute.

Well deserved result

Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said: “This is a well deserved result for our members, who will see an increase in pay and a dramatic improvement in their work life balance.

“Unite is once again demonstrating that it is doing what it says on the trade union tin and improving the pay and conditions of its members.”

Improved conditions

Unite national officer Tony Devlin said: “This pay deal is another example of how Unite’s strategy in the downstream oil delivery sector is delivering for Unite’s members. 

"It is a further reminder that those wanting better wages and working conditions should join Unite and get their colleagues to join as well.”
