Workers of Sinohydro Company working on the Tamale Interchange Project have embarked on an indefinite strike over what they described as unfair treatment meted out to them by Management of the Chinese Construction Company.
According to the aggrieved workers, Management have deliberately refused to pay their salary arrears, adding that, no worker has received risk allowance since the project started more than a year ago.
Speaking to the press in Tamale, a foreman at the site, Yakubu Abdul Rauf described the daily wage of 20 Cedis as woefully inadequate and called for an increment.
He further stated that, several calls on Management to address their concerns has fallen on deaf ears.
He said, untill Management decides to meet them and come to a compromise, no worker will step foot at the Project site.
Meanwhile, Management of the Company are yet to respond to issues raised by the workers, Eventhough, they are reports that, Management is set to meet with the workers on the issue on Thursday 18th March 2021.
The Sinohydro Project is one of the flagship infrastructure Projects embarked on by the Akufo-Addo Administration which is expected to build the first Interchange in the Northern part of Ghana.
