TDCL calls on TUC not to tolerate PURC
The Tema District Council of Labour (TDCL) has asked the Trade Union Congress (TUC ) not to tolerate and listen to any “monkey” tricks of the Public Utility Regulatory Commission (PURC) and the government any longer.
The TDCL and the Tema Organized Labour were surprised about the lukewarm attitude of the PURC and the government at an emergency meeting held last Friday to discuss the deadline given by the TUC and Organised Labour in respect of the utility tariff increase.
A statement issued by Mr. William Agana, the Chairman of TDCL and copied to Ghana News Agency on Tuesday stated that the TUC And the Organised Labour had shown more than enough maturity in tolerating the multi-faceted tricks and delay tactics of the PURC and the Government in addressing their concerns of reducing the upward tariffs adjustment to the levels that the ordinary poor worker can pay.
It added that, the TDCL and the Tema Organised labour were in full support of all decision and multiples of actions taken by the TUC in order to compel the PURC and the government to reduce the unbearable tariff increase to levels that can be tolerated by the masses.
The TUC would continue its strike scheduled to commence from the 18th of November if the government and the PURC fails to address their concerns.
