The Government and Hospital Pharmacist Association (GHOSPA) have indicated that despite the National Labour Commission’s (NLC) recent ruling in their favour, very little has been done to address their concerns.
Last Wednesday, the NLC dismissed Fair Wages and Salaries Commission’s (FWSC) stay of execution application.
This meant the Commission now has no option but to implement the grading system prepared by the Ministry of Health and the Ghana Health Service (GHS) for the Pharmacists.
According to GHOSPA, it will call off its strike if it sees that the authorities are showing some commitment in solving their issues.
The President of GHOSPA, Stephen Corquaye told Citi News
, “we think that nothing much has been achieved; … there are no real commitments that monies are being deposited in our account with regard to the month of April.”
He continued saying, “nothing has changed, we’ve not gotten the fair commitment on any of the two issues on which members decided to withdraw their services. We want to see a firm commitment that the issues are being addressed so that our members will be satisfied.”
Meanwhile, the leadership of GHOSPA will be meeting the Minister of Employment and Labour Relations later Friday.
