The fuel tanker drivers sit-down strike has been called off. The drivers went on strike based on what they called poor conditions of service.

The Ghana National Petroleum Tanker Drivers Union, as they are officially known in Ghana, announced an indefinite sit-down strike on Tuesday, May 21, 2024, demanding improved conditions of services, particularly with regards to remuneration.

But after a meeting with all stakeholders, the tanker drivers issued a communique to call off the sit down strike.

The communique stated that framework for their remuneration has been adopted and the implementation of the framework was expected to commence by the end of June 2024.

At a press conference held on Tuesday, the members of the union said despite an already agreed policy framework aimed at enhancing their salaries and other working conditions, which has been pending since November 2023, the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) and the sector Ministry have refused to implement the policy.
