GUTA strike suspended
The Ghana Union of Traders Association has suspended its strike action.
This is contained in a press release signed by the General Secretary of the Association, Alpha A. Shaban.
According to the release, the decision comes on the back of a meeting with the King of the Ga State, Mantse Nii Tackie Teiko Tsuru II who has promised to take the matter up to the appropriate authorities for urgent solution.
The release also stated that the leadership of the Association was given the opportunity to meet the President, Nana Akufo-Addo, and lay their grievances and recommendations before him.
“He [the President] then called for setting up of a working committee made up of the Ministry of Trade and Industry, National Security and GUTA, to swiftly come out with pragmatic measures to solve the challenges.”
The President has also indicated that most of the Association’s recommendations will be factored in the ongoing IMF discussion.
GUTA has thus called on traders who had participated in the strike action to reopen their shops today, as the Association’s leadership continues to pursue the process for immediate solution.
