Suttons Tankers has settled a dispute with its bitumen drivers based at the Eastham Refinery in Ellesmere Port.

The agreement between Suttons and Unite was reached on Friday 9th February following a series of discussions.

Michael Cundy, managing Director, Suttons Tankers said: “I am pleased that we have managed to resolve this situation which was difficult for all involved. We have managed to agree a position with our workforce which enables them to continue to work on this contract and positions our customer to compete in this very competitive sector.”
