The Ghana Road Transport Union (GPRTU) has called off its nationwide strike which took place on Monday, December 6, 2021.

Leadership of the Union in a statement have explained that this is due to an invitation from the Presidency for deliberations to be held on the issue.

“Further development will be communicated to members. We, therefore, entreat our cherished members to go back to their normal duties,” they said.

Commercial drivers across the country were directed by their Leaders to embark on a sit down strike action in protest of various levies imposed on petroleum products which has caused the price of the commodity to shoot up.

On Monday morning, Ghanaians who depended on the services of these commercial drivers were left stranded, with others indicating that they were compelled by the situation to walk miles.

The Coalition of Commercial Transport Owners made up of 16 transport unions – including the biggest group, the GPRTU withdrew their services following what they termed the government’s refusal to reduce taxes on petroleum products which they say has led to the high cost of petrol, diesel and LPG.
