Lusanda Bill
20 July 2011

Petroleum industry unions have been urged by Labour Minister Mildred Oliphant to accept a wage offer of eight- to ten-percent.

Employers made the offer following hours of negotiations late last night.

Unions have rejected the offer, holding firm on their demand for 11- to 13-percent.

Oliphant says the strike is having a negative effect on the economy and must be resolved as a matter of urgency.
