A proposed 10 per cent rise in transport rates, to become effective on Monday February 22, has been suspended by the Concerned Drivers Association.
David Aboado, association’s public relations officer told the trade union that after engaging with other drivers’ union, it had made the decision to suspend the proposal.
The concerned drivers association had earlier served notice that they were going to ensure upward adjustment in transport fares by 10 percent.
The drivers said they decided on the increment as a result of the rise in prices of spare parts and lubricants, increase in Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) service charges.
However, Mr Aboado said that the increment was suspended.
“We have suspended it after a meeting with other transport unions. We know the transport business had been plagued by the virus and after some consultation we issued no0tive to our drivers not to increase”, he explained.
David Aboado added that the group is engaging other transport unions for an unanimous increment, at a better time.
