Accra, March 15th, 2021 – The Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications (GTC) has noted with grave concern the announcement of a planned industrial action by the Telecoms and IT Professionals Union (TIP) which commenced today.
The body is made up of Engineers and Technicians contracted by Huawei Technologies Limited (a Telecommunications vendor), to manage and maintain the technical operations of AirtelTigo, MTN and Vodafone.
While the Chamber acknowledges and respects the right of TIP to negotiate for favourable conditions of services, the body is appealing to the Union to continue to pursue their demands through negotiation and arbitration.
The industry is equally working with all partners to ensure a speedy resolution of the challenge to minimize any disruptions in telecom services as this is important for the industry.
The Chamber will like to assure customers of its commitment to the provision of reliable telecoms services to its customers.
We will continue to keep the industry and general public updated on this matter.
For the Chamber:
Derek B. Laryea (Head, Communications)
