Parliamentary staff to lock out MPs if…

Workers of Ghana’s Parliament are planning what insiders are calling an “industrial action” if their conditions of Service are not improved.

Speaking on Eyewitness News, Chairman of the Parliamentary Workers Union, Maxwell Tetteh said ‘’our issue has to do with our condition of service for the past nine years. Since the time of Former Speaker Ala Adjetey, we called the management to come and review our condition of service but it seems to have fallen on deaf ears’’

Citi News’ investigations revealed that the angry workers are planning to lock out Members of Parliament (MPS) if the Parliamentary Service Board fails to improve their conditions of Service. According to Citi News sources, the plan to lock out MPs is said to be the only option left to get positive results.

‘’We cannot hold on much right now because our conditions of service is deteriorating and we cannot continue with the suffering again; if by the end of this particular month [October] we don’t hear anything then we will also advise ourselves as to what to do,’’ said the Chairman of the Parliamentary Workers Union.

Mr. Tetteh also intimated that those in management positions are given preferential treatment compared to the rest of the staff.

“I have worked in Parliament House for more than thirteen years and my salary is not even up to a GHC 1,000; I can send you my pay slip for you to clarify,’’ he added.
