Nurses, Midwives call off strike

The Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association has told its members employed by the Government to end their industrial action and immediately start reporting for work.

The move comes after a substituted service granted by the High Court forcing the nurses and midwives to go to the negotiation table with their employers. Many hospitals across the country have suspended services leaving many patients stranded. The Executive Secretary of the National Labour Commission, Ofosu Asamoah says he expects the striking health workers to return immediately. The Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association announced a total withdrawal of its services from Monday, September 21, 2020. This was announced in a press release signed by the president of the Association Perpetual Ampofo, following government’s stance on the negotiation of the condition of service for nurses and Midwives.
