The President Of The Judicial Service Association Of Ghana (JUSAG) Alex Nartey, said, the association has not recinded its decision to embark on an industrial strike, to press home their demands.
Since May 2015, The Leadership Of The Judicial Service Association of Ghana, has battled Government through The Employment And Labour Relations Ministry, for better conditions of service to no avail.
According to The President Of The Association, Government, only sought to meet part of their demands which they described as inappropriate.
He stressed that, The Association has met with Govenmement on several occasions at the negotiation table yet government has persisted with its stance not to heed their call for an upward adjustment of their salaries.
Addressing a News Conference in Accra, Alex Nartey hinted that, The Association has resolved with The Judicial Council, to give Government a week’s ultimatum to fully meet their demands else they will embark on an indefinite strike.
Advancing his points, he said, The Association can no longer compromise on what it deems fit, due to Government’s unwillingness to honour its part of the bargain.
Filled with anger and dissatisfaction, some of the members of The Association, who spoke to XYZ News’ Ibrahim Obeng-Mensah, accused Government of being insensitive to their plights.
According to them, Government is toying with their needs, hence, a deliberate attempt to tackle their proposal halfway.
They lauded the efforts of their leadership, and asked them to mount the needed pressure on government to respond to their legitimate call, for better conditions of service.
