Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• The Road Haulage Association national executive council at a meeting on Wednesday March 25 accepted a proposal from representatives from the RHA labour relations committee and of the employers' panel of the Road Haulage Wages Council that an approach be made by the employers' panel to the Council for an increase to £16 in the statutory minimum wage rate. Arrangements for the necessary application had already been made when news was received of an application from the TGWU to the workers' panel for a £16 lOs Minimum for a 40-hour week.

In the opinion of the RHA certain additional points will have to be taken into consideration. They include the problem of restrictive practices—and, in particular, the need for all drivers to accept the legal speed limit of 40 mph—and the impact of any statutory wage increase on existing agreements which already involve the payment of wages in excess of the statutory minimum.

These and other items are to be the subject of discussion with union representatives in advance of the Wages Council meeting.
