The Divisional Executive Council of the Public Services Workers’ Union (PSWU) of the Ghana Trades Union Congress (TUC) at the National Identification Authority (NIA) division has initiated an indefinite strike starting today, Monday, June 10, 2024. This decision comes after a unified agreement was reached during a council meeting held on May 23.

The strike, which was initially planned for March 24, was deferred following intervention by the Minister of Employment and Labour Relations. However, in a statement dated June 9, the PSWU expressed dissatisfaction with the government’s lack of progress in negotiating better conditions of service for NIA staff.

According to the statement signed by the Council Secretary, Kwabena Adu Kyeremeh, and Council Chairman, Francis Bangfudeme Nyuzaghi, the government’s failure to show good faith in the negotiation process has led to heightened agitation among members. Consequently, the Divisional Executive Council has resolved to declare an indefinite strike to address the poor and demeaning conditions of service.

In accordance with its decision, the PSWU has announced that all services provided by its members at NIA District offices, Regional offices, Headquarters, and premium centres will be indefinitely halted, effective Monday, June 10, 2024, until further notice.
