4,000 tanker drivers strike


Members of the Ghana National Petroleum Tanker Drivers Union (GNPTDU) will, from today, Monday, 24 September 2018, withdraw their services over what they describe as the National Petroleum Authority’s (NPA) failure to address their concerns.

The drivers, numbering over 4,000, said they will park their tankers until the NPA addresses their concerns relating to their conditions of service and welfare.

They have been protesting the regulator’s failure to ensure the full implementation of the Petroleum Producers Transportation Delivery Retail and Loss Control Manual, which was formulated by the Energy Commission in 2004, a situation they say has resulted in loss of earnings.

They further explained that not implementing the guidelines stipulated in the manual, was having dire consequences on them, as their salaries and remunerations are not paid by transporters.

A petition by the union to the Ministry of Energy, has urged the government to ensure all fuel stations implement the guidelines.

Chairman of the Union, George Nyauno, speaking to Class News, said they will only return to work if the NPA acts on their demands
