Petroleum Workers Order Gov't To Reduce Fuel Prices

The General Transport, Petroleum and Chemical Worker's Union  (GTPCWU), a chapter of the TUC has ordered government to reverse the recent fuel price hikes describing the hikes as unjustifiable and burdensome.

In a statement signed by the general secretary of the union, Fuseini Iddrisu, the GTPCWU says it is highly disappointed in government for agreeing on such a decision arguing that government was mainly confused and unconscionable in its decision.

Meanwhile, organised labour has called on government to effect a 50 percent hike in the salaries of public sector workers. Speaking in the failed settlement with government over a reduction on utility tariffs, chairman of the Tema District Council of Labour, Wilson Agana reveals his outfit will do everything possible to ensure that government will heed to their call for an increase in salaries since that remains the only way employees could survive in the wake of the current economic crisis.
