HSWU calls off strike


Members of the Health Service Workers Union (HSWU) of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have called off their strike.

Mr Franklin Owusu Ansah, General Secretary of the Union, told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that they had returned to work because Government had shown “goodwill” and called them to the negotiation table.

“We have suspended the industrial action not because someone has intimidated nor coerced us but because we have listened to the cry of the good people of Ghana,” he said.

Members of the Union withdrew their services from public and teaching hospitals across the country on October 26 to demand better conditions of service from their employer.

Mr Ansah said the Union hoped that every agreement reached with the Government would be implemented.

“We are on this note, using this medium to inform all our cherished members to return to work and discharge their duties accordingly with immediate effect,” he said.
