Ghanaian Mortuary Workers Declare Nationwide Strike

1 Mins read

The Association’s General Secretary, Richard Kofi Jordan in a signed statement on Sunday said members of MOWAG have had to work in intolerable conditions including constantly inhaling dangerous and cancer-causing chemical, formaldehyde.

The Mortuary Workers Association of Ghana (MOWAG) will embark on an indefinite strike from Thursday, October 1, over what they describe as unresolved grievances.

This, he said, MOWAG has engaged its employer, Health Ministry but little has been done to resolve the ‘long-standing’ issue.

He revealed that, in previous engagements with the MoH, pledges were made to implement certain simple changes in the working conditions of the members of MOWAG, but they have not seen anything to date.

This, he said this situation “points to the great possibility that the government does not intend to meet and resolve the MOWAG’s crying and life-threatening problems and grievances.”

“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.
