The Judicial Service Staff Association of Ghana (JUSSAG) has declared a nationwide strike, effective Friday May 20.
The workers claim government did not appear to be serious about their demands for the payment of their consolidated salaries.
President of the Association Alex Nartey declared the strike on Thursday May 19.
“We withdraw our services nationwide effective 20th [May] until government implements the Judicial Council’s approved consolidated salaries for directors, deputy directors, registrars, and the rest of the court staff,” he said.
JUSSAG had given government up to 18 May 2016 to address their salary concerns, failing which they would embark on an industrial action.
The workers, earlier on 30 April, embarked on a strike action over government delays in implementing a new salary structure approved for them by the Judicial Council, but suspended the strike action after receiving some assurances from government.
JUSSAG said when it suspended the action, it realised the government had gone to sleep on its issues, hence the decision to strike again.
