The Ghana Railway Workers Union has aborted a planned strike action to press home demand for improve conditions of service.

“Having stated our case, the Commission saw that we had a case and that there was the need to bring in the Minister for Finance and the Minister for Transport to come and appear before them so the issue can be resolved properly,” General Secretary of the Union, Godwill Ntarmah said.

However, “on Wednesday [September 14], we are going to meet at the National Labour Commission,”  he said on Citi FM, adding: "once we have all been subpoenaed to come before the Commission, we think we have to give the Commission the maximum respect by not stopping the trains on Monday and waiting on the outcome of the Wednesday meeting.”
