Ghanaian mortuary workers have threatened to embark on nationwide strike over the poor condition of service.
Mr Richard Kofi Jordan, the General Secretary of the Mortuary Workers Association of Ghana (MOWAG) explained that working conditions are not the best and they even have to use hand gloves for days which is a threat to their health.
“Most Mortuary Workers work more than the required 8 hours including Saturdays and Sundays in violation of section 33 of Act 651”, he said.
Mr Jordan continued that;
“Many of the mortuary facilities are understaffed, no maintenance which compromises on health and safety rules of the sector making the workers unnecessary to suffer in silence.
In terms of our Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), some have to struggle to get them to use making the working conditions at some facilities undesirable”.
In a notice available to GhanaCelebrities.com, they are embarking on a nationwide strike on Tuesday, November 20, 2018, until all their concerns are addressed by the Ministry of Health.
