By | September 17, 2020

The Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association in a statement monitored by Tertiary Ghana have threatened to embark on a strike from Monday, September 21 2020.

According to the Association, government has failed to improve their conditions of service for the over 82,000 members.

President of the Association Perpetual Ofori Ampofo on Thursday, September 17 told TV3‘s Daniel Opoku that negotiations with the government over their work conditions did not yield any results.

She also raised issues with non-payment of the allowances for frontline health workers and insurance, which were promised as part of incentives in the fight against Covid-19.

Looking at the above situation it is likely that the Nurses and Midwifery Licensing examination that is ongoing may come to a halt.

The Association says it has petitioned the National Labour Commission (NLC) over its intended action.
