Mortuary workers to embark on nationwide strike October 1

The Mortuary Workers Association of Ghana have declared a strike action from Thursday, October 1, over what they describe as unresolved grievances.

In a statement, the General Secretary of the group, Richard Kofi Jordan said members of MOWAG have had to work in intolerable conditions including constantly inhaling dangerous and cancer-causing chemical, formaldehyde.

“Having become tired of its inactions and being aware that the government appears to be nowhere near taking a serious look at the grievances of the MOWAG, pursuant to resolving same problems, the MOWAG, under article 159 of the Labour Law (Act 651) has now initiated this industrial strike action till its demands are met.”
