Staff of the Architectural and Engineering Services Limited (AESL) in the Volta Region have joined their colleagues across the country demanding seven months’ salary arrears with a sit-down strike threat.

They claimed they had been surviving on loans since August 2017 and asked government to intervene and save the Company from imminent collapse.

At a press conference on Tuesday, Mr Christian Kwawu, the Local Workers Union Secretary said if the arrears were not paid by Monday, February 19, 2018, they would close down the offices.

He said the staff were also not happy about the continued stay in office of the Managing Director, whose contract they alleged ended in January 2018 and asked government to act.

Mr Kwawu lamented about the absence of board of directors for the Company for over a year and the lack projects for staff since 2015.

“We are really suffering. Since 2015, no work (projects). All jobs go to private consultants. They only call us when they encounter any challenges,” he grieved.

The staff, clad in red, chanted war songs and said there was no backing down on their one week ultimatum.
