The staff of Metro Mass Transit Limited says the Company is in danger of collapsing if its current financial state does not improve within the next four weeks.
The staff who have not been paid for two months are embarking on a nationwide indefinite sit-down strike to compel the government to come to their aid.
Leadership of the Metro Mass Workers Union explained to Radio Ghana that the nature of the strike is a peaceful one, adding that they are open to discussions with government to resolve the matter.
The staff says they have not received their salaries since May, after receiving half salaries for April this year due to the COVID-19 restrictions.
More than one hundred Metro Mass buses were parked with no sign of movement at the Head Office, as the drivers loitered around while others were seen relaxing at the canteen.
Chairman of the Senior Workers Union, Nii Ashitey Attram told Radio Ghana that the Company is in danger of collapse.
Chairman of the Junior Staff Union, Samuel Kwasi Quaye explained the strategy of a peaceful approach to solving their problem.
Currently, Metro Mass has about 200 buses in operation with more than 600 broken down across the country.
The staff who number more than three thousand nationwide say they are living in fear of starvation as they do not know where their next meal will come from.
