Some 14 unionized truck drivers attached to SOL EC Limited initiated a strike on Friday over delayed wage negotiations.

The aggrieved truck men who are represented by the National Workers Union said they are willing to return to work, if the company agrees to reach a settlement regarding wages.

Reports are that a petition was sent to the management of the company giving them seven days to address the matter, but they never responded to the said petition.

The drivers are responsible for transporting diesel, cooking gas and aviation fuel to locations throughout the island.
