In a letter address to the Chief of Staff, the Secretary-General of TUC, Dr Yaw Baah, slammed the planned Bidders Conference by MiDA scheduled for Monday, October 31, 2016.
“The TUC considers this act on the part of MiDA as a betrayal of trust and demonstration of bad faith. This is because the Technical Committee which you set up to deal with the issues raised by Public Utility Workers Union (PUWU) of the TUC has not concluded its work,” Dr Baah said.
The letter reminded the Chief of Staff that it was agreed that the Bidders Conference would be postponed until there was a response from the Chief of Staff’s office on the policy issues raised at a Technical Committee held at the Flagstaff House on September 20, 2016.
“This action by MiDA undermines the process and the spirit of consultation.”
The letter urged the Chief of Staff to stop the Bidders Conference so as to consider other options proposed by the TUC.
“It is our hope that you will take the necessary steps to stop the Bidders Conference,” it said.
