Blz: Back from the brink

A petroleum haulers strike couldn't have come at a worse time, just as thousands of Belizeans are hitting the highways and waterways to get away for the Easter weekend. But although the Belize Petroleum Haulers Association were adamant about their refusal to continue working without a contract with Shell Belize, a meeting convened by Minister of Transport Cordel Hyde appears to have diffused the tension. Both parties agreed to try and end the impasse in the contract negotiations and to have their attorneys finalize the prospective contract. The haulers have agreed to resume service and both parties will meet again with the minister on April nineteenth.
