MUSIGA Joins TUC Demo Today

The Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) will join the Trades Union Congress (TUC) on Thursday to demonstrate against economic hardship in the country.

The TUC announced last week that it will embark on a nationwide demonstration on Thursday, July 24 against economic challenges workers and Ghanaians as a whole are facing currently.

The TUC has said the demonstration is inspired by the current hikes in petroleum prices, the fall of the Ghana’s cedi against major trading currencies and high cost of living.

MUSIGA president, Bice Osei Kuffour (Obour), who is currently in the US, confirmed in an interview with Myjoyonline.com that the musicians union is a member of the TUC and therefore will take part in the demonstration.

Myjoyonline.com has intercepted a letter of invitation, signed by Deborah Freeman, General Secretary of MUSIGA, urging musicians to join the demonstration Thursday.

The letter said: “Come as a MUSIGA member and a good citizen of Ghana in red and black (dress code). Demonstration will take place on Thursday 24th July, 2014.”

Read the full letter below:

Fellow Musicians and members of MUSIGA. Besides, MUSIGA being an affiliate of the Trade Union Congress (Ghana), which covers its members, we are all good citizens of mother Ghana; therefore please follow this!

Organised Labour has noted with shock and total disbelief, the astronomical increases in the ex-pump prices of petroleum products announced by the NPA recently. The ex-pump prices of premium and LPG have been increased by 23.08 percent, respectively.

These increases have far-reaching effects on prices of a wide range of goods and services. And they are coming at a time when Ghanaians are faced with very difficult economic conditions.

Organised Labour finds no economic or social justification for the upward spiral in the prices of Petroleum products that the NPA and government continue to force down the throat of Ghanaians. Given the rapid fall in the value of the Cedi, the Organised Labour maintains that the current pricing formula for fuel punishes consumers and must be reviewed! A subsidy regime on petroleum products is necessary.

THEREFORE: On behalf of the council of informal workers Associations of TUC((Ghana), I would like to invite you to join workers as we demonstrate our frustrations against the hikes in petroleum prices and high cost of living in this country.

Come as a MUSIGA member and good citizen of Ghana in red and black (dress code). Demonstration will take place on Thursday 24th July, 2014.

We will converge at Circle Obra spot at 6: 30 am and jam through to the TUC head office near Accra Polytechnic, where the Secretary General will give his address and proceed to the Min. Of Employment and Labour Relations to submit our petition to the Gov. Through the Minister.

Please don’t miss out, come one, come all. It’s our right to demand for better Economic conditions.

See you! From Deborah Freeman, for CIWA of TUC (Ghana).
