Judicial service staff declare indefinite strike

Supreme CourtThe Judicial Services Staff Association of Ghana (JUSAG) has declared a nationwide strike beginning Friday, May 20, 2016.

The strike, according to the leadership of the association, is to compel government to pay them their two years consolidated salaries.

JUSAG at a news conference in Accra re-called countless meetings with government and the Judicial Council which have yielded no results.

An agreement was reached for their two-year consolidated salaries to be paid to them but that is yet to be fulfiled by the government.

According to the association, in April this year, an intended strike was aborted after a promise from government to pay them. A presidential meeting set up to discuss the payment schedules failed to implement the recommendations.

President of JUSAG, Alex Nartey said “[We are suspending] our services nationwide effective tomorrow until government implements the judicial councils approved consolidated salaries for director, deputy directors, registrars and the rest of the court staff.

“All regional executives are to ensure full compliance of the above directives and I want to appeal to all the staff, follow the issues and abide strictly with the directive.”

He again asked other key stakeholders to impress on government to facilitate the payment of their consolidated salaries.

Meanwhile the Minister for Employment and Labour Relations, Haruna Iddrisu has declared the current JUSSAG strike as “unconstitutional and illegal.” He indicated that although they have legitimate issues, government has not reneged on its promise to resolve their concerns and indicated that several meetings have been held and recommendations have been made and would be implemented in due course.”
