Exhaust all legal options before embarking on strike – Labour analyst to workers – Citi Business News
Labour analyst, Senyo Adjabeng has urged public servants to ensure they exhaust all available options within the law to have their concerns addressed instead of resorting to strike actions. He stated that, "The labour law under the offences by body of persons requires that if there are any offences that are committed by a body like a union, the executives of the union are deemed to have committed the offence. So, this illegality will be on the heads of the executives and so if there is any action that comes out of, for example, somebody loses their relative, because of the strike action or any other action that comes as a result of the strike action, the executives can be held liable and our labour law provides for that." Workers in the public service tend to resort to industrial actions to drum home concerns over their condition of service.
