Striking workers of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) have called off their strike after meeting with leadership of the Merridian Ports Services Ltd.

This comes after a staff of the union was rushed to the hospital following an assault by the police for demonstrating.

The strike turned ugly as police officials clamped down on demonstrating the demonstrating staff last night.

The workers have been agitating since Tuesday in demand of a ceding 20% container business to GPHA from the Merridian Ports Services Ltd.

According to eyewitness, an attempt to continue the agitations into the night was met with resistance by the police who forcefully drove out the workers resulting in some persons injured and one of them seeking medical attention.

The strike meanwhile has entered its third day before it was called off.

More soon…
