NIA staff strike begins today

The Divisional Executive Council of the Public Services Workers’ Union (PSWU) of the Ghana Trades Union Congress (TUC), National Identification Authority (NIA) division, is expected to embark on an indefinite strike from today, Monday, June 10, 2024.

This follows a council meeting held on the 23rd of May, where a unanimous decision was reached.

The strike was initially planned for the 24th of March but was deferred following intervention by the Minister of Employment and Labour Relations.

In a statement dated June 9, the union said, “The condition for the deferment of the strike action was that the government, represented by the FWSC, and the management of NIA facilitate the negotiation and implementation of better conditions of service for staff of the NIA among others. However, the government has not shown good faith in the negotiation process.”

The statement, signed by its Council Secretary, Kwabena Adu Kyeremeh and Council Chairman, Francis Bangfudeme Nyuzaghi, further noted that, “the Divisional Executive Council has therefore resolved to declare this indefinite strike in response to the heightened agitation of our members on the need to embark on an industrial action to drum home our 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 centers will be indefinitely halted, effective Monday, 10th June 2024, until further notice.
