Don’t decide on the percentage of the fares to rise until after our meeting – GPRTU to members

Members of the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) have been instructed not to raise transportation costs until a meeting has been called to determine the proper amount of increase.

Alhaji Imoro Inusah Abass, the GPRTU’s Director of Industrial Relations, stated that despite the rise in fuel prices, the organization was not in a haste to implement the hike.

He insisted that they would need to get together to decide on a percentage if they were to raise fares.

He disclosed that the meeting is set for the following week.

“Whatever decision we arrive at, the transport ministry is also there to defend. We most often sit with them and argue on whatever decision we have taken. You know we do not run with only fuel, even though fuel plays the most important role, we have documentation of insurance premiums, we have lubricant, spare parts also playing its role, so we have to visit all these issues and put it in one basket.”

“God willing, I strongly believe we will come out with a sound percentage of which our members will embrace and the passengers should not blame anybody as such. For now, nobody should increase the fares,” Mr Abass added.

“So we plead with our membership or the entire professional drivers’ society to exercise patience so that we will look at the other side of the coin and come up with something better which will benefit all of us,” he added.
