Staff of the Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCO) have softened their stance on the decision to withdraw services in the wake of the upcoming December elections.

The aggrieved workers had, on December 4, announced that they will not attend to all emergencies including the falling conductor, transformer failure, and system control.

According to the workers, management and the board have failed to furnish it with information on the 2020 wage opener negotiations.

But in a press release on Saturday, the Senior Staff Association of GRIDCo explained that it owed a patriotic duty to the country to go back on its commitment in order to ensure the smooth running of the elections.

“The leadership of the staff groups having considered the December 7, 2020 National Elections of Ghana and also as good patriotic citizens, have in consultation with key stakeholders decided that all staff should avail themselves to all emergencies and standby arrangements to attend to any form of system fault that may occur before, during and after the elections,” the statement said.

The Association, however, explained that it remains unhappy with the treatment meted out to them and appealed “to all staff to have mother Ghana at heart for us to have a very peaceful and successful election.”

On Thursday, the staff of the company locked up management members of the company to press home their concerns for redress.
