Ministry of Health and the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) together with the
Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) will today, Wednesday, 13th November
2019 hold crunch meetings over a planned strike by the medical doctors on
condition of service.
This strike follows the Ghana Medical Association’s (GMA) threat to withdraw its services over the failure of the government to put into effect the agreed conditions of service of its members.
The Ghana Medical Association in July 2015 embarked on a 3-week strike over the absence of a codified condition of service.
Chief Executive Officer of the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission, Dr Eric Kwapong said the Commission hopes to sign the document by Wednesday after finalizing negotiations with the GMA, the Finance Ministry and the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations.
Mr. Kwapong also wondered why the GMA had threatened to withdraw its services when negotiations for their service of conditions were ongoing.
The Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) has expressed its willingness to sign the agreed conditions of service document for Medical Doctors/Dentists working with the Ministry of Health and its agencies.
