LONDON -(Dow Jones)- U.K. arbitration body ACAS will meet with U.K. fuel tanker companies and Unite, a labor union threatening to take strike action, Monday to try to resolve a dispute over working conditions, the government said Friday.

"There is no strike at the moment, and we are calling for a swift resolution to this industrial dispute. Both parties have agreed to meet with ACAS for talks next Monday," the government said in a statement.

Energy Secretary Ed Davey Friday discussed strike contingency plans, including training more military drivers, when he met representatives of the seven haulage companies involved in the industrial dispute, a spokesman for the Department of Energy and Climate said.

U.K. fuel tanker drivers voted Monday to strike for improved working conditions and health and safety, a move that lead to a jump in gasoline and diesel sales and shortages at some filling stations around the country.

Members of Unite work for seven major fuel distribution firms delivering to retailers including Tesco PLC (TESO), J Sainsbury PLC (SBRY.LN), BP PLC (BP), Royal Dutch Shell PLC (RDSA) and Esso.
