The protest is expected to take place in Accra on April 27, 2018. According to the workers, the government taskforce, consisting of security personnel and other industry players have been inactive for some time.

He said they want the work of the taskforce re-activated as soon as possible and therefore the best thing to get their problems resolved is to hit the street to register their displeasure.
