wanker drivers strike

So the latest blow to motorists' sanity is a tanker drivers strike.

I won't go into all the usual stuff about lorry drivers being an endangered species etc, but what struck me was this -

The pay row has erupted because members of Unite claim they are paid the same now as they were in 1992, just under £32,000 a year, despite their working week being 11 hours longer. Source.

Hmmmm. Really? If true one has to ask -

a) What on earth justified these people getting £32,000 in 1992 for a part time job?

b) What sort of union allows its members to lose pay on such a huge % over 16 years?


c) Does the union employ a five year old chimp to do its maths and PR?
