The Ghana Association of Biomedical Laboratory Scientists (GABMLS) will today, August 30, head to the High Court to respond to a suit against it by the National Labour Commission (NLC).

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.

In his response, the President of the association, Mr Ignatius Abowini Nchor Awinibiino said it is not in the power of the NLC to determine whether or not the strike is illegal.

He said he and his members will state their case at the court, and whatever the court decides, they will act accordingly.
