GMA strike Govt not serious with doctors - GMA

  • Published: , Refreshed:

The Ghana medical association has scheduled an extra ordinary general meeting on Friday to decide whether to call of their strike or resign en masse.

 This decision was taken by at a National Executive Council Meeting by the GMA at Koforidua.

"The National Executive Council mindful of the various developments including appeals by various groups in the country has therefore taken the decision that an Extra Ordinary General Assembly meeting be held on Friday, 14 August, 2015, to review the situation."

In a statement issued after the meeting, the association revealed that, at the negotiating table with government it was clear that the government team was not properly mandated as they could not take proper decisions.

The GMA said it was forced to carry on with its roadmap resign en masse because government did not show signs of seriousness from the beginning of the negotiations.

According to them government kept withdrawing its proposals anytime the two parties were about making head way, only to present "a take it or leave it" proposal on August 09, 2015, which according to the GMA was the worse since negotiations began.

The GMA is warning "the on-going media war and propaganda launched by the Government through putting out of lies and half-truths do not add value to negotiations. 

"In the opinion of the GMA, this path only leads to the inflammation of passions. This rather worsens the situation and in so doing boost the determination of the GMA to press home our demand for a proper negotiated and signed Conditions of Service."

The doctors have been on strike for almost two weeks refusing to return to work despite various appeals. Per the roadmap of the GMA, Friday the 14th of August should be the date the doctors begin their resignation.
