Following the increasing economic hardship in the country, labour has served notice that it will soon demand higher wages and better working conditions.

A number of demonstrations have been staged by organised labour to force government to respond to their grievances. However, the demands according to organised labour, have fallen on deaf ears.

John Esiape, General Secretary of the Union of Industry, Commerce and Finance Workers (UNICOF) of the Trades Union Congress (TUC) speaking to Citi News admonished Ghana’s president, John Dramani Mahama to seek consensus on how to improve their living conditions.

“I cannot understand how we will not pressure government to meet our demands. If two dead goats decide to fight you can imagine. So far Labour has not labelled itself as dead goats yet but we hope it won’t get there but man must live and when there is pressure on the worker anything at all can happen,” he said.
