The Association also accused the government of failing to abide by the ruling of the National Labor Commission (NLC) which urged the government to pay the market premium as a percentage of their basic salary.

 

Newly elected president of the association Dr. Frank Ankobea told journalists that government has taken doctors for granted.

"The GMA therefore decides that if all the issues of full implementation of conditions of service and market premium together with the related matters of conversion difference and reduced pensions are not dealt with by government immediately, the GMA by 18 hours GMT, April 30, 2018, will begin a series of activities that will definitely affect the current industrial climate," he said.
