The Mortuary Workers Association of Ghana(MOWAG) has set May 02, 2019 to begin a nationwide strike.

This will be their third nationwide strike in less than twelve months.

In a letter addressed to the Ministry of Health(MoH) and sighted by kasapa Fm, the mortuary workers say the industrial action has been necessitated by the supposed delay tactics employed by the government in the matter.

The group has given the MoH 31st April deadline, to reach out to them or go ahead with the strike.

This is despite the National Labour Commission(NLC) intervention, that invited the aggrieved Mortuary Workers for further deliberations ahead of the intended strike by the group.

Members of the Association, in March 2019, laid down their tools over low salaries and poor working conditions.

The strike was called off few days after the launch of the protest following a crucial meeting with the National Labour Commission that restored hope.

But the group still contends their demands have still not been met, hence the strike next month.
