Tanker Drivers Halt Indefinite Nationwide Strike

Tanker Drivers call of their sit home strike after their remuneration policy framework got adopted.

The Ghana National Petroleum Tanker Drivers Union has called off its sit-down strike after meeting with all stakeholders, citing poor working conditions as the reason for the protest.

They said the new remuneration framework had been adopted and would be implemented by the end of June 2024.

This comes at the back of the tanker drivers announcing an indefinite sit-down strike on Tuesday, May 21 demanding improved conditions of service, particularly in terms of remuneration.
