Agitating business associations extend strike

Members of some business associations who ended a three-day strike on Wednesday to protest tax hikes have extended their action.

The Joint Consultative Forum comprising about five business associations and led by the Ghana Union of Trades Association (GUTA) want government to reduce the taxes and new tariffs which they say have choked the business environment.

The businesses, including Food and Beverage Importers Association of Ghana, and Institute of Freight Forwarders, did not state when they are likely to end the action.

They say a decision to extend the strike is due to government’s failure to address their concerns.

Spokesperson of the Forum, John Awuni, told XYZ Business government has refused to listen to them.

The business associations have indicated that, as part of the demonstration, they will not pay taxes until government meet their demands.
