Members of the Ghana National Petroleum Tanker Drivers Union have declared an indefinite sit-down strike demanding improved conditions of service.

According to the drivers, an agreed-upon policy framework aimed at enhancing their salaries and other working conditions has been on the table of the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) board since November 2023.

Despite several efforts to get it approved, the aggrieved drivers say the NPA board has refused to vote on it for it to be implemented.

The Vice president of the Ghana National Petroleum Tanker Drivers Union, Sunday Alabi noted that a petition was sent to the Presidency for the policy framework’s approval, which he said they are yet to get a response.

He indicated that until the framework is approved, they will continue to strike.
