The fuel tanker drivers in Ghana have ended their sit-down strike due to poor working conditions. The Ghana National Petroleum Tanker Drivers Union had initiated an indefinite sit-down strike on Tuesday to demand better working conditions and improved pay.

However, after a meeting with all stakeholders, the tanker drivers issued a communique to call off the sit-down strike. The communique stated that the framework for their remuneration has been adopted and the implementation of the framework was expected to commence by the end of June 2024.
