Ghanaian Mortuary Workers To Embark On Nationwide Strike on Nov 29

Mortuary Workers Association of Ghana (MOWAG), has announced their intention to go on a nationwide strike starting Wednesday, November 29, 2023.

The decision comes as a response to longstanding grievances regarding working conditions, salary disparities, and inadequate resources within the mortuary sector.

The Association has notified six government institutions in a press statement signed and issued by its General Secretary on Monday, November 20. The institutions include; the Ministries of Health, Employment and Labour Relations, National Security, Finance, Fair Wages and Salaries Commission, and the National Labour Commission.

According to the association, the notice of the indefinite nationwide strike is in accordance with Section 159 of Act 651(2003) of the constitution. The move, the group said, is to exercise their fundamental human rights as enshrined in the 1992 Constitution.

“Our position is that all mortuary workers in Ghana shall lay down their tools starting on Wednesday, 29th November, 2023, until all matters already in your domain are resolved. This is in exercise of our rights as the 1992 Constitution of the Republic of Ghana stipulates,” the statement said.
