Headlines We’re going back to work due to public outcry of decerning Ghanaians — NIA workers

The staff of the National Identification Authority (NIA) has suspended its indefinite strike action which began on June 10, 2024 after intense public outcry.

In a statement dated June 12, the Public Services Workers Union of TUC(Ghana), NIA Division announced that it has resolved to suspend the strike pending engagement with the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission on Friday.

The suspension comes also on the back of appeals from government institutions like the Ministry of National Security and the National Labour Commission to return to the negotiating table.

"The reason for this suspension is based on several interventions from stakeholders including the Hon. Minister for National Security, the invitation from the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission to the negotiation table, the advice of the mother union based on the ruling of the National Labour Commission today, and the public outcry of decerning Ghanaians," the statement signed by the Divisional Council Secretary, Kwabena Adu Kyeremeh, said in part.

The union leadership acknowledged the widespread support from the public for their industrial action.

"We appreciate your unprecedented massive solidarity and compliance following the declaration of the strike action. The action has really made a tremendous impact," the statement read.

The strike action, according to the staff, was to press home their demand for better conditions of services.
