GRNMA calls off strike after being served with an injunction
The Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association (GRNMA) has called off its strike effective tomorrow, Thursday, September 24, 2020.
President of the Association, Perpetual Ofori-Ampofo made this known at a press briefing today in Accra.
According to her, they suspended the strike action because of an interlocutory injunction on the GRNMA by the National Labour Commission (NLC) yesterday (September 22).
“In the face of the injunction, our respect for the court, coupled with our innate passion to serve our patients and clients and for that matter the good people of Ghana, we have decided to temporarily suspend our strike action with effect from Thursday, 24th September 2020 at 8 am pending the outcome of our negotiations,” she said.
“For the avoidance of doubt, we wish to indicate that the strike action is merely suspended and our gallant nurses, midwives, PA’s and CRA’s are to begin full work on Thursday 24th September 2020 at 8 am with the morning shift”.
The Association declared a strike action over poor conditions of service.
The Association together with the Ghana Physician Assistants Association and Ghana Association of Certified Registered Anesthetists withdrew their services on Monday, September 21, 2020.
They took the decision after they claimed negotiations to have improved conditions of service failed.
