Today, Monday, September 21, 2020, nurses and midwives around the country are starting a strike over their service conditions.
It comes after the government’s inability to negotiate with health staff on their appeal for better service standards.
A press release by the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association noted that “the employer ‘s stance improved for the better at the meetings held on 15 and 16 September 2020, but did not satisfy the wishes of the majority of nurses , midwives, physician assistants and qualified registered anaesthetists in Ghana.”
The statement, however, instructed its representatives to stay away from work until their employer fixes the unresolved problems.
Meanwhile, on Friday, the Accra High Court approved the National Labour Commission’s appeal for an interlocutory injunction against the protest.
The move of Justice Frank Aboagye Rockson, presided over by the judge, is to stop the industrial action of health workers.
