A SECOND 24-hour strike by tanker drivers in support of a sacked worker will start from midnight.
Staff at Wincanton, who deliver fuel for BP Castrol, will stage a protest outside the Bridges Road site in Ellesmere Port for the second Thursday in succession.
The official strike action is being held in support of a colleague who was dismissed for alleged use of a hand held mobile phone while driving a forty-tonne articulated vehicle in March.
Unite officer Tommy Kirwan says workers are concerned that there could be an ulterior motive behind the dismissal.
However, Wincanton is standing firm saying it would make “no apologies” for fully enforcing its health and safety guidelines.
