After emergency meeting Doctors vote to remain on strike for two weeks

  • Published:

Report reaching Pulse.com.gh suggests that doctors have resolved to remain on strike instead of resigning.

The Ghana Medical Association has been on strike for about two weeks now after their negotiations on conditions of service with government hit a deadlock and had vowed to resign en masse on Friday, August 14, if government fails to yield to their demands.

However, after a three-hour crucial General Assembly meeting held at the Ghana Medical Association offices at Korle Bu Teaching Hospital on Friday, the doctors decided to continue with their strike and review their decision in two weeks.

Reports suggest that while 148 doctors voted for the association to return to work, 213 voted for it to maintain the status quo. Emergency services and Out Patient Departments (OPD) withdrawal is hereby not restored.

Dr. Kwabena Opoku-Adusei, president of the union, earlier today hinted that due to immense pressure from political, cultural and religious leaders they were likely to call off their two-week industrial action over conditions of service.

"We may go back to work because of appeals from chiefs, religious leaders and other opinion leaders," he told Reuters. "We are likely to return to work, and not as happy people."
