The labor movement declares the strike on Monday, July 10

The trade union movement declared the strike on Monday 10 July.

The strike is linked to the dismissal of three union leaders by the management of Sunon Asogli Power (Ghana) Limited for joining a union.

Other trade unionists are also said to be victims of abuses by the management, which is mainly made up of Chinese.

The Labor Party had since March called for the reinstatement of three of them, but the efforts appear to have yielded no results.

The National Labor Commission (NLC) and the Ministry of Employment and Labor Relations have been involved with the General Secretary of the Ghana Trades Union Congress, Dr Anthony Yaw Baah, who is also spokesperson for Organized Labour, meaning notice of industrial action.

“Even the President of Ghana cannot prevent any worker in Ghana from exercising their right to belong to a union,” Dr Yaw Baah told a press conference in March.

On Monday June 26, he ordered public sector workers not to show up on Monday July 10 as a first step in calling Sunon-Asogli management to order.
