Latest statement on tanker drivers dispute

Thursday 29 March 2012

An Acas spokesman said:
        "Acas has been in contact with Unite officials as well as all the contractors 
        involved in the fuel tanker drivers' dispute. We are now in the process of 
        receiving more detailed briefings from the parties on the various issues 
        underpinning the dispute. This will enable us to determine more clearly the 
        form substantive talks should take to provide the best opportunity for a 
        negotiated settlement.
        "We should conclude that process by Monday and would then hope 
        substantive discussions would follow shortly afterwards."
