Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• A new rate schedule affording an increase of 11.4 per cent results from negotiations between the Western Quarry Tipper Operators Group and the Western Roadstone Centre. Operating from April 1 until March 31, 1971, it is based on a minimum load of 10 tons. Specimen rates for drystone, per ton, are as follows: five miles (one way), 5s; 10 miles, 6s 7d; 20 miles. 9s 11d; 30 miles, 13s 5d; 40 miles, 16s I Id; 50 miles, 20s 3d; 60 miles, 23s 5c1; 70 miles, 27s; 80 miles, 31s; 90 miles, 34s 8d; 100 miles, 39s. Additions are, for coated stone, Is 6d per ton; for hot rolled asphalt, a further 6d per ton.

Hourly rates on day work are: four-wheeler, 30s; six-wheeler, 35s; eight-wheeler, 40s. After an hour, waiting is charged at 22s 6d an hour for a four-wheeler and 30s an hour for vehicles with six wheels or more.

The new schedule arose from a joint costing exercise followed by a survey of average lengths of journey carried out by WRC members in the East Mendips.

The Quarry Haulage Committee Central Region has decided to approach the Central Roadstone Federation on similar lines.
