Drivers of Aayalolo Bus Rapid Transit System have begun a sit-down strike today, Monday, 24 February 2020.
They have been protesting against their employers, the Greater Accra Passenger Transport Executive’s (GAPTE), over unpaid salaries that have been in arrears for seven months.
The drivers are striking irrespective of the National Labour Commission’s directive to them to rescind their decision and resort to other alternatives.
According to them, they will not budge until their claims are settled.
There has been little or less activity at the terminal in Accra.
Meanwhile, the management has been meeting over the strike.
