The Association of Ghana Industries has decided not to be a part of an intended strike action by the Ghana Union of Traders Association and the Ghana Exporters and Importers Association.

GUTA, last week announced that its members will close their retail shops and businesses from February 29 to the 3rd of March 2016.

Though a communique circulated by GUTA  mentioned the Association of Ghana Industries as one of the business bodies who will be striking as well, the Association has released a statement to refute it.  They say they have chosen to dialogue with government on the issue instead of embarking on a strike action.

“We wish to state that the Association has not been consulted on this intended strike action and therefore disassociates itself from such publication.”

Read the full statement below as released by AGI and copied to Pulse Business:

The Association of Ghana Industries’ (AGI) attention has been drawn to a publication in the 25th edition of the Daily Graphic and other media regarding business associations declaring a three-day strike and closing down of shops from Monday February 29 to March 3, 2016, in protest against “killer taxes”, the publication stated.

AGI was mentioned as one of the business associations behind this intended action.

We wish to state that the Association has not been consulted on this intended strike action and therefore disassociates itself from such publication. We share the concern of businesses regarding the multiplicity of taxes.

Much as AGI has on several platforms expressed concern over the multiplicity of taxes, we have not resorted to a strike action.

AGI is still in dialogue with policy makers and Government over addressing the burden of taxes.
