The nationwide strike of gas tanker drivers and LPG marketing companies has ended. The drivers claim this is because the administration has addressed their concerns after the strike.
Driving and marketing firms issued a joint statement ending the strike, saying they had struck an agreement with the National Petroleum Authority (NPA).
Gas for both residential and business purposes became scarce once the strike began.
They cited the restriction on gas station buildings throughout the nation as another reason for the walkout, along with the bad working conditions.
The majority of tanker drivers are not given consistent income, which has been a source of disappointment for many of them.
“Also, when wages are being provided, the sums being paid are meager and incommensurate with the effort of the typical Tanker Driver. We’ve filed several complaints and staged numerous strikes to get what we feel is due to us. They said, “Every time we bring this up, we are assured that our issues would be handled.
They said that the pledges and guarantees were never remembered or acted upon once the group decided to stop its activities.
On Thursday, August 4, 2022, the government finally authorized the building of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) stations around the nation.
