Just In: Another Workers Union Embarked on Demonstration Against The Government - Full Details

Members of the Ghana Toll Workers Union have embarked on a protest to demand their reassignment and payment of six-month salary arrears from the government. The protest began at the Accra Southern Toll Gate and is expected to continue until their demands are met.

The protest is the latest in a series of actions by the union to address their concerns, which include their inability to secure their work sites and the slow pace at which the government has acted on its promise to reassign the workers. The government has so far failed to assign the workers and has only paid half of the salary arrears owed to the workers.

The General Secretary of GTWU, Joshua Bugyaa, said they were not officially informed that their jobs will be scrapped as a result of the e-toll system.

"We have not been working for six months because we were told to stop when the new system was introduced but we have not been paid for those six months," he told Citi News.
