    Southfuels tanker drivers are happy to finally be recognised for their long hours

    Southfuels tanker drivers are happy to finally be recognised for their long hours

    The drivers walked off the job for a week in December, and since then have only been working 40 hours a week.

    Today, they reached agreement with the company fora new overtime rate when working long hours, a minimum wage increase of 3 percent and 10 days paid sick leave.

    Union organiser Justin Wallace says they wanted to get closer to the industry standard for overtimes rates.

    He says these men and women are working 60-70 hours a week and should be getting a decent remuneration for what they do.
