BoG workers call off strike

By myjoyonline

Workers of the Bank of Ghana have called off a two-day strike to demand better service conditions.

A compromise was reached at a lengthy meeting chaired by the Chief Adviser to the President, Mrs Mary Chinrey Hessey at the Castle Tuesday afternoon. The government directed management and workers to go back to the negotiating table.

The parties have a month to submit a report to the presidency.

The General Secretary of the Industrial Workers Union (ICU), Mr Napoleon Kpo, who broke the news to the workers appealed to them to resume work Wednesday morning.

“We are going home, relax ourselves and tomorrow morning we are all reporting to our various offices and go about our duties as normal. Please keep the red bands because if there is the need to re-put it on we would do so,” he directed.

At the meeting were Deputy Minister of Employment, Dr Brempong Yeboah, First Deputy Governor of the BoG, Mr Van Laire Dossu, and leadership of the Industrial Workers Union and the workers.
