Strike negotiations could be about to take place in the oil industry as tanker drivers are to meet to warn of increasing anger regarding the sector's insecurity.

Unite - the union representing 3,000 UK workers in the field - has called for the fuel distribution industry to improve its organisation or be regulated to do so.

General secretary of the group Len McCluskey has written to the seven major oil transport companies in the country and invited them to a summit meeting to see how improvements can be made.

One topic likely to be discussed is preparations for possible strike action among tanker drivers.

Mr McCluskey said: "The industry is on the highway to catastrophe - it is chaotic, a key workforce is utterly fed up and our genuine efforts to address these issues are being ignored."

Unite is the biggest union in Britain and includes two million members that are drawn from all different fields of employment.
