BP Fuel Tanker Drivers On Strike

About British 70 tankerdrivers are protesting at changes to their pension rights

Fuel deliveries to 1,300 BP petrol stations could be disrupted from Friday after a group of tanker drivers voted for a five-day strike, BBC World News.
reported.

The Transport & General Workers' Union said 74 drivers at the oil giant would walk out from Friday, affecting deliveries of petrol.

The dispute arose when the drivers were transferred to BP from private firm EXEL earlier this month.

The transport union said they were being offered an inferior money-purchase scheme rather than the final-salary one they had at Exel. BP said they were being offered the same conditions as its other drivers.

Final talks will be held on Wednesday in an effort to prevent industrial action.
