THE Road Haulage Association is advising members not to employ agency drivers. Mr E. W. Russell, the Association's secretary, says in this month's Road War the RHA's house journal, that if agency drivers have to be employed then operators will probably find that their contracts of insurance are jeopardized, and that there 'could be serious security vehicle risks. He also asks members to consider that the cost of training drivers supplied by agencies is met by substantial training levies paid to the RTITB, and he points out that agencies do not pay such levies. Mr Russell says that the distinct and gloomy prospects are that driver agencies require very little encouragement to enable them to control a substantial part of manpower available to the industry.
