Funerals to be postponed as Mortuary Workers threaten to close down mortuaries  

It appears families who have bodies preserved in some mortuaries in Ghana may have to postpone funeral dates since mortuary workers are threatening to close down all mortuaries over unfair treatment by government.

The Mortuary Workers Association of Ghana (MOWAG) have indicated that it will embark on an indefinite strike from Wednesday November 29, 2023.

The Mortuary workers in a statement on November 22, explained that all efforts to resolve their grievances have proved futile, hence their intended strike.

The Association has in the past complained about their harsh working conditions.

“At the general meeting of members of MOWAG, it was agreed that since all avenues to resolve our grievances have proven futile, notice of indefinite nationwide strike be served as in Section 159 of Act,651(2003). Our position is that, all Mortuary Workers in Ghana shall lay down their tools starting on Wednesday, 29th November 2023, until all matters already in your domain are resolved.”
