The workers emphasized that their decision to strike is in exercise of their rights as stipulated in the 1992 constitution of the Republic of Ghana. They expressed their hope that the strike would lead to a resolution of the issues they are facing.

The decision to strike comes with a quote from Dr. W.E.B. Du Bois, emphasizing the workers’ desire for a fair share of the good things in life and the opportunity to live in the fullest sense.

“No scheme of life can be right or complete which dooms those who toil hardest to get the meanest share of the good things of life and to have no chance of living in the fullest sense”Dr.W.E.B.Du Bois (The Crisis.January,1919)
