Mortuary Staff Union in Ghana has advised members of the public to wait until their strike is over on Nov. 20, before dying. 

Richard Kofi Jordan, General Secretary of the union gave the advice while indicating that the union’s planned strike action would go on as planned unless the government listens to their concerns, reports Ghanaweb.

He said, “Those who intend to die during that period should wait. When mortuary men are back to work they die; simple.

Mortuary workers in Ghana’s public health facilities are protesting their poor working conditions and are therefore demanding improved terms of service.

According to the aggrieved morticians, they are exposed to several diseases given their close contact with corpses and chemicals used in preserving them but each time they raise concerns, the government turns a deaf ear.

“The chemicals we use give us five different kinds of cancers, the government is aware of this situation.

“We are also at risk of blindness but nobody is addressing our challenges,’’ he added. (NAN)
