Addressing a press conference in Accra on Saturday, the Spokesperson of the group, Douglas Adu Fokuo said they are not convinced by the promises made by the Minister of Employment.

“After several deliberations and our persistent patience to receive these monies, our government and authorities failed us. The promises they gave us and the reassurances were not implemented hence the leadership and entire membership of the coalition have come to the cross road where going back to the workplace is an impossibility until all our standing arrears are paid,” he said.

“We hereby declare an indefinite strike from Monday 5, October, 2015. We will swiftly return to work when all of us receive messages that there is payment,” Mr Adu Fokuo added.
