Staff of the Ghana Meteorological Agency (GMet) have served notice to embark on an indefinite nationwide strike beginning Friday, February 18, 2022.

According to the staff, the government has failed to respond to their resolution presented to the Communication and Digitalisation Ministry on January 5 which enumerated their poor conditions of service, hence, their decision to commence the industrial action.


“…having presented a resolution to the honourable Minister for Communication and Digitalisation dated January 5, 2022 without any response, we do hereby resolve to embark on an indefinite strike action starting from Friday 18th February 2022,” a statement from the staff noted.
