OSHAWA, Ont. — The Independent Automotive Truckers Association (IATA), headed by Bill Wellman, will be meeting Nov. 3 to discuss the importance of gathering fuel surcharges from General Motors (GM).

The newly-formed group is hoping to convince GM it needs to pay a fuel surcharge, based on the high price of diesel. The meeting will take place Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Pipeline Commercial Cardlock (Pete’s Donuts), which is located south of Hwy. 401 on Thickson Road.

In a press release, IATA leader Wellman, says "Only a strong showing will force GM to recognize the importance of this issue. Only a strong showing from all owner/operators will get action to better your position and improve the quality of your life."

The press release also says GM has refused to pay a fuel surcharge because the company doesn’t feel there is a major problem facing carriers and O/Os regarding the price of fuel.
