Gas tanker drivers suspend strike amidst LPG shortage

Gas Tanker Drivers Union has suspended its sit-down strike, as they agree to meet stakeholders to resolve their challenges.

The drivers, on Sunday, 1 November 2020, met the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations and the Minister, on one hand; and the Ghana Transport Petroleum and Chemical Workers Union of GTUC, Ghana National Petroleum Tanker Drivers Union, Liquefied Petroleum Gas Marketing Companies, Ghana LPG Operators Association and Oil Marketing Companies of Liquefied Petroleum Gas, on the other hand, to resolve the impasse.

The union, a few weeks ago, accused officials of the National Petroleum Authority of conniving with some police officers to harass them on the roads.

The drivers also want approval for more than 80 applications submitted to the NPA for the construction of LPG stations.

Meanwhile, checks at some LPG stations indicate that there is a shortage of the product in some parts of the national capital and other cities across the country.
