The Committed Drivers Association of Ghana will on 19 September 2016 go on a nationwide strike to voice their displeasure about government’s introduction of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system. They are also kicking against the introduction of Uber Taxi services in Ghana.
Uber is a technology company that connects riders and drivers at the touch of a button. Available in 467 cities across 72 countries, the Uber platform is evolving the way the world moves. Uber’s mission is to change the way citizens of the world move, work, and live. It aspires to transform the way people connect with their communities and to bring reliability, convenience and opportunity to transport systems.
In June this year, Accra was named the latest city to join Uber’s booming network in Africa. But it appears the drivers are not happy with its presence in the country.
The Public Relations Officer for the association, Francis Appiah told ClassFMonline.com on Saturday that the strike action will be preceded by a press conference on 13 September where they will detail their concerns to the public and the government.
The situation will mean all commercial drivers who are members of the association will stay away from work on 19 September.
