The Teamsters Union said 75,000 of its members at leading trucking companies across the US walked out and a further 30,000 at other freight companies could strike later, Reuter reports from Washington. A nation-wide strike would not halt all road haulage - non- union truck-drivers account for 30 to 50 per cent of shipments weighing less than 10,000lb.
