Tamale Interchange Workers Embark On Strike To Demand Unpaid Allowances

Construction works on the Tamale Interchange Project has stalled following a strike action by workers over wide range of issues including unpaid redundancy allowances or the past one year.

The workers who abandoned work also complained about bad conditions of service, unpaid risk allowance and merger GHS20 daily allowance.

Addressing the media in Tamale, the leadership of workers also accused management of the Synohydro Project of over taxing up to GHS300.00 monthly of their salaries.

According to the aggrieved workers, management of the project treat them with gross disrespect and discrimination.

They are therefore calling on government to intervene and ensure all arrears accrued are duly paid.

They are further demanding for an increment in salaries and improved working conditions.

In 2019, President Akufo-Addo cut sod for the commencement of the $20 million project, a contract between the Government of Ghana (GoG) and the People’s Republic of Chinese under the Synohydro agreement.

However, the project is expected to be complete in July 2021.

Meanwhile, contractors say work on the project is about 60 percent as at 31 January, 2021.
