Mortuary Workers threaten another strike over poor working conditions


Mortuary Workers threaten another strike over poor working conditions 1

The Mortuary Workers Association of Ghana has announced its intention to embark on another strike if the Ministry of Health fails to address its concerns.

The group called off a three-day strike two months ago after a meeting with the National Labour Commission, and a promise by the Ministry to enter into negotiations with them.

The workers have been protesting poor conditions of service.

A statement from the Association said the Ministry and other allied partners do not intend to listen and resolve their grievances, thus their decision to go on strike again soon.

President of the Association, Edward Mensah Akpakudi in an interview with Citi News said the Association is bent on embarking on a strike to get their concerns addressed.

“There has not been any sign of negotiation. We think that some people are still conspiring to drag our feet. We shall embark on a strike. We are not sure when but we will communicate clearly to the public and the media. This strike is going to be serious…We will not be intimidated or bullied around as if we do not know what we are doing. We are tired of stories.”

The Association recently threatened to embark on a strike but rescinded its decision after the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission intervened.

The Association had said the strike was to register the displeasure of its members over what they described as government’s reluctance in meeting their demands.

Earlier this year, the workers embarked on a similar strike to protest over poor working conditions and salaries.
