The timely intervention by the Management of Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation (BOST) Company Limited in the Republic of Ghana has averted an industrial action by members of Petroleum Tanker Drivers’ Association in Buipe in the Savannah Region.
The drivers declared a sit down strike on Monday, citing some operational challenges which they explained are affecting them.
Among the concerns the drivers raised included malfunctioning discharge meters at the Buipe depot.
However, barely 24 hours when the drivers declared the strike, Managing Director of the company, Edwin Provençal, Josiah Attah; General Manager in charge of Terminal and Transportation and Marlick Adjei, General Manager Corporate Communications and External Affairs, met them to address their concerns.
The MD and his team informed them that a contract had already been signed for the supply of discharge meters.
Mr. Provençal assured them that their challenges would be a thing of the past in the next couple of months.
The drivers expressed satisfaction with the assurances from the MD and his team and promised to resume work tomorrow, Wednesday, September 9, 2020.
