• A leafleting campaign is being launched against an Irish haulier which sacked two drivers who wanted their pay negotiated through a union.
About 5,000 pamphlets will be distributed by drivers who claim that Irish Republic-based Nolan Transport pays its long-distance drivers only Z2.00-2.50 an hour.
The company allegedly refuses any sick pay or overtime payments and has no pension scheme: Nolan Transport declines to comment.
The Services Industrial Professional Technical Union hopes the leaflets will "shame" the firm—something which it says six pickets entering their 22nd week of action have failed to achieve.
