The leadership of the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association (GRNMA) says it has temporarily suspended the nationwide strike which commenced Monday, September 21, 2020, due to a court injunction.
In an address monitored by Tertiary Ghana, the President of GRNMA, Perpetual Ofori Ampofo, therefore, urged members to resume work from Thursday, September 24, 2020, pending further action after returning to the negotiation table.
“We are extremely grateful to every one of you for standing up to the occasion. Your absence has grounded the health system and if you did not value yourself as a nurse or midwife, this should change your perception forever.
For the Employer, who had intentionally forgotten our value has felt heavily the impact of our absence and must begin to pick up the pieces of such long-standing neglect by placing value and importance on the unique services we provide.” – Perpetual Ofori Ampofo, GRNMA President said.
For the avoidance of doubt, we wish to indicate that the strike action is merely suspended and our gallant nurses, midwives, PAs, and CRAs are to resume full work on Thursday, 24th September 2020 at 8:00 am starting with the morning shift.”
The group also called on managers of health facilities across the country to withdraw any action taken against its members for engaging in the strike action.
