The Ghana Association of Biomedical Laboratory Scientists (GAMBLS) has called off its strike following what it described as consultation with stakeholders within the sector.

The Biomedical Laboratory Scientists began a strike action on August 22, following government’s inability to implement the National Health Laboratory policy as a matter of urgency.

According to the laboratory scientists, the health ministry has been lackadaisical in the implementation of the policy which is meant to raise the quality of laboratory science practice nationwide.

A statement signed by the President of GABMLS, Ignatius Awinibuno, accused the Health Ministry of disregarding their needs by refusing to show up at a planned meeting which was to address the stalled implementation of the policy.

The NLC subsequently described the strike by the biomedical laboratory scientists as illegal.

It filed a suit last week Tuesday at the Labour Division of the High Court, praying the court to compel the scientists to go back to work.

But even before a scheduled hearing of the suit against them today [Tuesday] by the High court, the Association said the national executive committee met and the strike action has been called off effective 29th August 2016.
