Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

DISCUSSIONS between the Road Haulage Association and the transport workers' union are to go on to try to reach agreement on the question of Joint Industrial Councils.

TEWU spokesman Mr Ken Jackson told CM that the union has told the RHA that it is opposed to the setting up of a national JIC. "The danger is that a national JIC could fall into the same discredit as the Wages Council," he said. Instead, the union wants to see regional bodies discussing wages and conditions.

At present the Government's Arbitration, Conciliation and Advisory Service is compiling a report on the Wages Council which will probably lead to its disbanding.

Mr Jackson was hopeful that there would be further discussions with the RHA on JICs and that they would reach agreement on regional councils.

At the preliminary meeting last week both sides had made their positions plain. "There was an exchange of views on the subject of national JIC," saul Mr Jackson.
