Tanker drivers threaten strike

    Members of the Ghana National Petroleum Tanker Drivers Union (GNPTDU) have threatened to lay down their tools if the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) and the Energy Ministry fail to enforce its loading and discharging manual for Bulk Vehicle Operators.

    According to them the non-compliance of the manual guide has resulted in the fuel purchasing companies using different means to measure the quantity of fuel delivered which differs from that of the suppliers.

    They therefore pay less and the driver’s companies surcharge the drivers for the differences.

    In an interview with the Chairman for GNPTDU, George Nyaunu told Class FM’s Ibrahim Obeng-Mensah on Monday 14 May 2018 that the presidency has issued a directive to the NPA and Energy Ministry to enforce compliance but the authorities have failed.

    He said the drivers are being given poor remuneration due to the artificial shortages at the filling stations.

    The Union wants the relevant authorities to address the issue within the week else they may be forced to embark on a strike to press their demand.
