The Association on Monday, November 2 wore red arm bands to register their anger at government’s failure to fulfill its promise to settle their allowances.
According to members, four months after reaching an agreement with government, no payments have been made.
But JUSAG’s action on Monday drew criticism from some labour experts, who claim the Association should rather do more about the rot exposed in the investigative work of journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
“Are we saying that Anas’ investigation is bigger than what we do and so everything should stop?’ asked Alex Nartey.
Speaking on TV3 on Monday, November 2, Mr Nartey said the Association is made up of over 6,000 work force.
“The mere fact that some of the colleagues have been implicated doesn’t mean that there are not genuine issues.”
He, therefore, called on government to address their grievances, failure of which they will scale up their action.
