Nine Labour Unions Threatens to Lay Down Their Tools By April 30 

Members of nine labour unions making up “The Forum” threatens to lay down their tools by April 30. 

The leadership of the unions are disappointed in government for failing to transfer pension arrears of members to their fund managers which has lingered on for more than ten years.

Chairman of The Forum, Isaac Bampoe Addo, spoke to 3news. 

The Forum met and raised issues that we wanted to be addressed by Minister of Pensions. We wanted among others, transfer of past credit by SSNIT to the public sector pension scheme…The Minister has not acknowledged our letter so we shall proceed with our strike. So from here, we are going to notify the National Labour Commission about our strike,” he said.

The Forum comprises public sector associations which include, the Civil and Local Government Staff Association (CLOGSAG), Ghana National Association of Teachers, (GNAT), National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT) Ghana, Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association (GRNMA), Ghana Medical Association (GMA) Government Hospitals Pharmacists Association (GHOSPA) and Judicial Service Staff Association of Ghana (JUSAG), and Ghana Association of Certified Anesthesis.
