Food And Beverage Association Joins GUTA Strike
The Food and Beverage Association of Ghana (FABAG) has served notice that its members within the retail sector will close down businesses effective Wednesday, the October 19, 2022. According to the association, the decision is also in line with the Ghana Union of Traders Association’s (GUTA) planned protest to close down
shops on Wednesday. A statement issued by FABAG’s General Secretary, Samuel Ato Aggrey stated that the action has become necessary due to government’s failure to address issues affecting their businesses. From beginning of this year, businesses have also accumulated losses through some of government’s
unfriendly policies. All efforts to engage government to remedy the situation has proved futile, the statement said. The statement expressed unhappiness about the economic management team for not taking steps to making meaningful efforts towards remedying the situation in the face of the current economic hardship.
