The National Labour Commission (NLC) has sued members of the Government and Hospital Pharmacists Association (GHOSPA) at the Labour Division of the High Court in a bid to compel the group to call off its strike.

GHOSPA declared an indefinite strike in protest over what they call the failure of the National Labour Commission (NLC) and the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) to address discrepancies in their market premium payment.

But the NLC argues that the strike action is not in the interest of the ordinary Ghanaian.

“We have filed a motion at the High Court, Labour Division, to get a court order to get them to resume work immediately… Even though every worker is justified in pressuring the employer for better conditions of service and higher remuneration, they should also take note that they have a responsibility to ensure that people do not die needless deaths,” the Executive Secretary of the NLC, Charles Adongo Bawa Duah told Accra-based Citi FM.

The NLC suit against GHOSPA follows a similar suit which compelled striking biomedical laboratory scientists to call off its two-week nationwide industrial action
