Organised Labour has postponed its planned strike for Monday, July 10, 2023.
The planned strike was to seek the restoration of three of their local union workers whose contracts had been terminated by Sunon Asogli Power Limited.
According to labour, the decision came after the Council of State sought adequate time to engage key stakeholders.
Dr. Yaw Baah, Secretary General of the Trades Union Congress, told the media that the TUC has given the Council of State till July 17, 2023 to come up with positive news.
“Today, the council of state called us and assured us. Having listened to our issue they saw that, we are not asking for the moon, all that we are asking is that our three brothers are reinstated and that we should work together to ensure that our rights as workers should not be abused by any employer whether they are Chinese, or Ghanaian or anywhere they come from.”
“After they gave us that assurance, they also requested that will give them time to work with governemnt to get our demands met,” he stated.
“But on the 17th of July we are all coming back here for update on from Council of state and the presidency. We are hoping that by the time we meet on the 17th we have good news for you. If we don’t have good news what it means is that we will have to reactivate our strike action,” he added.
