All Accra trotro operators to join transport unions

If a government proposal becomes adopted, all trotro operators will be required to affiliate with a transport union or risk penalty. The new regulation is widely regarded as a form of greater state control over the informal transport sector for taxation purposes. Many trotro drivers do not belong to unions because they cruise along the commuter routes and are not bound to a particular terminal where they feel bogged down by administrative and operational encumbrances.
