Uber, Bolt, Yango Drivers Strike Tomorrow

    The leadership of the Online Drivers Association of Ghana has declared a sit-down strike over welfare concerns.    The two-day national sit-down strike will start on Tuesday, April 5, and end on Wednesday, April 6 to drum home their demands for better conditions of service as online drivers across the country.

    The Association is advising members to stay home as the leadership seeks an audience with the management of the online driving platforms over their grievances.

    A spokesperson for the Association, Nana Yaw Told Accra 100.5FM‘s midday news on Monday, April 4, 2022, that they have concerns about the security of the drivers and the recent increment in fuel price hikes.

    He noted that the fares online drivers charged have not changed.

    He added that all the needed permissions have been sought from the Ghana Police administration for a massive demonstration. The group also said they will petition Parliament.

    He said they have also notified their car owners of the decision not to work tomorrow and Wednesday.

    According to him, one of their major grievances is that “We don’t know where the rider is going until the journey is started.”

    This, he said must change, adding that they should be told where the rider is going and the amount involved “and if I’m satisfied with it, I’ll respond.”
