Judicial Service Staff to withdraw services this week

The Judicial Services Staff Association of Ghana has threatened to withdraw services this week following what it describes as a series of “unsuccessful meetings” with management over unpaid benefits and allowances.

Leadership of the association said it had issued an ultimatum to management which expired on Friday October 30 for their grievances to be addressed but nothing concrete had been agreed on.

Following the expiration of the ultimatum, president of the association, Alex Nartey said “the national executive council in consultation with the general members of the association decided to issue an action plan and it is as follows…

“Effective Monday November 2, Judicial Service Staff of Ghana nationwide would be in red armbands same on Tuesday and Wednesday. If by close of Wednesday we still do not see any positive results then from Thursday we would do a partial withdrawal of our services.”

In May this year the association declared an indefinite strike over similar concerns regarding allowances with led to a halt of activities at the various law courts.

Employment and Labour Relations Minister, Haruna Iddrissu back in May assured the workers government’s commitment to addressing their grievances.
