Over unpaid allowances, the Coalition of NABCO Trainees has threatened to stage a protest on June 10.
The Coalition claimed that Trainees’ financial status had deteriorated as a result of the government’s failure to pay their seven-month allowance after the government had urged them to stay on.
The Coalition said in a press statement signed by Frank Quansah, the National Secretary for NABCO Trainees, and copied to the Ghana News Agency that the government’s delay in migrating Trainees into permanent mainstream job had harmed their career exit prospects.
The Coalition declared that all efforts to persuade the government to honor its pledge and pay each trainee an accrued sum of 4,900 Ghana Cedis had failed, and that the trainees were determined to demonstrate in demand of their allowances.
“We have been crippled and left penniless and heavily indebted,” the statement said. “As a result, we demand that the government pay all arrears due us before June 10, 2022, as well as ensure that the promise of permanent jobs is fulfilled immediately so that trainees can exit the scheme peacefully.”
