Unite to re-ballot fuel tanker drivers at Hoyer for strike

Following an investigation it has become apparent that a handful of people didn't receive ballot papers.

We could fight a legal challenge from the company (Hoyer) but we believe it is important that everybody has a say which is why we are re-balloting.

Our legal team are drawing up the notice for the re-ballot and confirming the ballot timetable and we anticipate the ballot will take place quickly over the next couple of weeks.

In the meantime we remain committed to finding a negotiated outcome.
