Jamaica's gas stations back to normal after trucker strike

A strike by truck drivers distributing fuel in Jamaica only caused “minor disruptions” for retailers, said Phillip Chong, President of the Jamaica Gasoline Retailers Association (JGRA).



Last update:

After fears the truckers´ strike would spread scarcity throughout the country, Chong confirmed that only a handful of gas stations ran out of fuel. Haulage contractors returned to work a day after the strike, which took place last Tuesday.

The truck drivers went on strike to complain about several employment issues including lack of health insurance and poor union representation, reports The Gleaner. 

The JGRA represents more than half of the country’s 300 gas station operators.
