Government Hospital Pharmacist Association (GHOSPA) has given government a 10 day ultimatum to address its concerns over their Single Spine Salary (Grade Structure and Market Premium), and their Conditions of Service.

The aggrieved group has also threatened to use all means to press home their demands for improved conditions of service if government fails to address their concerns.

The group in a statement said it is “facing serious difficulties in concluding negotiations for Conditions of Service for pharmacists in the public sector”.

It indicated that it has for the past 6 years petitioned government concerning the existing and new grade structure for pharmacists as well as the existing issues relating to their interim market premium.

GHOSPA has therefore called on the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission, The Ministry of Health, The Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations, The National Labour Commission to resolve these challenges or face their fury.

This Release is to serve Notice to Government and all stakeholders of our intention to utilize all legitimate means to press home our demands if, on or before 20th July 2016, we do not have any conclusive agreements on the Single Spine issues (Grade Structure and Market Premium) and the Conditions of Service Negotiations”, the statement read

GHOSPA is however worried that if no drastic measure is taken, the status quo will remain and be marked by excuses, adjournments, and unnecessary delays.

We, as executives, would not hesitate to trigger the collective decisions and implement the road map as put together by our national delegates to bring finality to our issues. We may not want to disturb the industrial harmony on the Labour front but we cannot keep mute forever. Enough is enough”, the statement added.

GHOSPA withdrew its services at the various hospitals in August 2015 over unresolved issues with the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission over conversion differences after their migration unto the Single Spine Salary Structure.
