Members of Unite, the UK and Ireland’s largest union, employed by Hoyer Petrolog on its Flexi Fleet contract have agreed to delay a ballot for industrial action, to allow further talks to take place in the on going pay dispute.

Negotiations will now resume at a senior level in an attempt to resolve the pay dispute.

Welcome fresh negoitations

Unite regional officer Steve Gerrard said: “It has always been Unite’s position to exhaust every possible avenue to find a resolution to disputes, and we welcome the prospect of further negotiations.

“Hoyer’s management must now come to the table with an open mind and participate in constructive and meaningful talks, if the ballot is to be avoided.”
