‘Dumsor’ during Xmas likely as GRIDCo staff declare indefinite strike

Staff of Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) have announced a sit-down strike beginning Wednesday, December 10, until further notice.

The sit-down strike would be followed by a picket at the GRIDCo Head Office at a date to be announced later by the Staff Group Leadership, the Senior Staff Association of the power supplier said in a statement.

GRIDCo runs the National Interconnected Transmission System which ensures the transmission of electricity from wholesale suppliers (generating companies) to bulk customers, which include the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) and NEDCo among others.

The GRIDCo staff are demanding that some GHS250 million which President Nana Akufo-Addo directed the Finance Minister to pay GRIDCo, be paid.

They are also demanding the following debts be paid immediately to GRIDCo: VALCo’s debt of about $32,567,974 as of September 30; ECG’s debt of about GHS 607 million as of March 1, 2019; the PDS debt of GHS94,204, 903 which ECG collected during the suspension of the PDS; the NEDCo debt of about GHS177 million as of September 30, 2019.

The GRIDCo leadership has been pushing for the payment of these millions since the beginning of this year.
