The General Secretary of the Christian Council of Ghana (CCG) Rt Rev. Dr Kwabena Opuni-Frimpong, has said the leadership of the church must partner the state in addressing the ongoing strike actions by various professional bodies in the country.
He noted that such strike actions undermines the tenets of labour negotiations which does not foster peace on the labour front.
Speaking in a fraternal message at the on-going 2015 Synod of the Global Evangelical Church in Accra, Rev Opuni-Frimpong stated that it is better to resort to amicable dialogue in mediation to settle issues that confront workers.
Public Sector doctors across the country over a week ago embarked on a strike action after their negotiations with government over their conditions of service hit a deadlock. Government Pharmacists and the University Teachers Association of Ghana, are also on strike demanding better working conditions and unpaid allowances.
Meanwhile, Mrs Matilda Amissah-Arthur, the Second Lady, opened the six-day Synod themed: “Thy Kingdom Come.”
More than 650 delegates from all over the country and beyond are attending.
