The leadership of the Jamaica Gasolene Retailers' Association (JGRA) is meeting to determine its next course of action at the expiration of an ultimatum issued to petroleum marketing company RUBiS.

The seven-day ultimatum expires at 5 o’clock this afternoon.

JGRA President, Phillip Chong, says dealers are not satisfied with the response of RUBiS to concerns about the terms in the company’s franchise contracts.

He says the association received a response from RUBiS on Friday.

Chong says since then Energy Minister, Dr Andrew Wheatley, who is overseas on government business, has intervened and has promised to address to the dealer’s concerns.

He says the dealers are adamant that they will not let up in their demand for what they consider a fair and reasonable contract.
