Staff of the Judicial Service Association of Ghana (JUSAG) has declared an indefinite strike over their unpaid allowances.

The President of JUSAG, Alex Nartey said, “We know the importance of the role we play in sustaining the judiciary. In spite of the importance of our role, we seem to be this year, unprecedentedly distressed.”

"The strike is indefinite until government has paid all that is due us and we are satisfied," he declared.

Addressing the agitated gathering on Tuesday he said, “We are going home, when government calls us and tells us that it has paid all the allowances due us tomorrow, we will come back to work the following day.”

According to JUSAG members, several appeals to the government over their concerns have yielded no results.

The group served notice on Friday, May 15 it will embark on strike by close of day today if government fails to heed their demands.

“We are workers who are full of discipline. We are not being mischievous, we are not being destructive. The reason why we could wait up till this point is because we were oppressed, we were unhappy and we wanted government to see the urgency of our needs. Therefore from tomorrow, nationwide, no Judicial Staff will go to work.”
