Workers of the Metro Mass Transit Company Limited in the Ashanti regional capital, Kumasi have embarked on another sit-down strike over unpaid salaries.

The workers of the company last week embarked on the industrial action but later called it off after assurances that their salaries will be paid. However, they say those demands have still not been met.

The Chairman for the Junior Staff Union of the Kumasi branch of the company, John Osei said, they had only received one month’s salary adding that until all their monies are paid they will not operate.

“The managers promised to pay the two months’ salary and the back pay but as we speak, we have only received a month’s salary. The workers have asked me to stay away from this issue because if they are not paid, they will not work. As we speak, I have a loan I am servicing at the bank, so if only a month’s salary is paid into the account, all the money will be deducted. So this is one of the many reasons why the workers are not happy,” he lamented.

The General Transport Petroleum and Chemical Workers Union of TUC, the mother union of  Metro Mass workers have also threatened to take legal action against the government in this regard.
