The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Communications Workers’ Union, Ghana Trades Union Congress (TUC), has urged the Government to replicate the Neutrality Allowance in all government and state institutions.

That, the NEC said, would encourage national development agenda instead of the political agenda prevailing in those set ups.

It also called on government to consider paying “COLA” (Cost of Living Allowance) to all government workers to cushion them against the current economic hardships.

The NEC, in a communique issued after a two-day meeting of the Union in Accra to deliberate on issues affecting the Ghanaian worker, expressed displeasure over the abandonment of government projects, some of which were left to rot.

It tasked the TUC-Ghana to ensure that there was continuity in government projects by successive governments to avoid waste of state resources.

Conscious efforts must be made to finalise the National Development Planning Document to bind all successive governments to continue and complete projects left behind by their predecessors, it said.

“We, the CWU at our NEC meeting from May 19 to May 20, 2022, is aware of the plights of Ghanaian workers as far as conditions of service are concerned,” the communique said.

“We bemoan the show of unconcern on the part of the Government to listen to the sufferings of workers…Therefore, we hereby affirm our support to any decision or action taken by the Leadership of TUC-Ghana to correct the wrongs.”

“The NEC and, for that matter the Union, aligns itself to the sufferings of Ghanaian workers and affirm its support for any action by the leadership of TUC-Ghana.”
