Employers in the Road Freight sector and the unions have reached an agreement, to avert strike by the unions.

In a statement the Motor Transport Workers Union says that Fedusa unions in the sector signed a two-year wage agreement yesterday.

The Fedusa unions agreed on a 9 percent and 8 percent wage increases for 2007 and 2008 respectively.

The four unions (Satawu, TAWU, MTWU and Professional Transport Workers Union) had been in deadlock with the employers and would strike if agreement was not reached by today.

The Freight industry caters for Cash In Transit workers, Road Ferry trucks, furniture trucks and ordinary long distance truck drivers.
