Members of the Communications team of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have announced a strike action.
Checks have revealed that the decision to strike is to protest the non-payment of monthly allowances.
All communicators have been directed to stay away from radio and other media interviews until their grievances are resolved.
“Since we elected the new national executive we haven’t received any monthly allowance. They used to give us GHS1,000 but the money is not coming anymore. We didn’t even receive anything for Christmas; hunger is killing us while we are on radio and TV defending their corrupt deals with empty stomachs,” one of the communicators told GHOne News in an interview on anonymity.
Meanwhile, a letter to all Ashanti Regional Communicators has confirmed the strike.
At a General Meeting of Regional and National Communications Directors, a conclusion was made that from Tomorrow, Monday, 30th January, 2023, ALL COMMUNICATORS are embarking on a SIT DOWN STRIKE until further notice.
This is to press home demands from the National Party as regards
YOU’RE HEREBY OBLIGED TO COMPLY WITH THIS DIRECTIVE.
