KINGSTON, Jamaica:

The National Workers’ Union (NWU) says the Petroleum Haulage Contractors Association is to provide a list of all its contractors who have implemented agreed haulage rates.

NWU president Vincent Morrison says with the promise of the list, there is no threat of industrial action by tanker drivers.

He says the list is to be presented to the union today.

On Tuesday, the NWU said it was giving marketing companies two days to show proof that they are complying with the rates agreed in January.

In January, the drivers went on strike to force the marketing companies to pay higher rates to haulage contractors, so that they could get an increase.

New rates were agreed and scheduled to be implemented by the end of February.
