Information reaching thepublisheronline.com indicates that Ghana National Petroleum Tanker Drivers Union (GNPTDU) have called off their strike.
The Ghana National Petroleum Tanker Drivers Union has called off its intended strike over the issues surrounding oil discharging at the various Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs).
Members of the Ghana National Petroleum Tanker Drivers Union (GNPTDU) on 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,parked their tankers until the NPA addresses their concerns relating to their conditions of service and welfare.
They want the NPA 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.
Earlier In a statement from NPA, the Authority addressed that “the drivers met with the NPA and the relevant bodies in the petroleum industry for a resolution of their concerns, and there will be no need for the strike to happen.”
The statement further stated that the NPA’s scheduled meeting with TDU members resulted in “an amicable outcome.”
“More than 80 percent of their concerns have been addressed,” Tampuli said.
The NPA is in the beginning stages of implementing a memorandum of understanding to be agreed to by both parties.
