Striking nurses and midwives expected to resume work today

Striking nurses and midwives are expected to resume work today, leaders of the the Ghana Registered Nurses Association have said.

Over 7,000 members of the Coalition of Unpaid Nurses and Midwives on Monday declared an indefinite strike to demand the payment of salaries owed them by government in the last three years.

They claimed the decision was because several attempts to have their grievances addressed have yielded no positive results.

But president of the Ghana Registered Nurses Association, Mr. Kwaku Asante-Krobea said he is urging the nurses to go back to work as plans are far advanced for them to be paid their outstanding salaries.

"I said initially that you cannot trust the system we are operating. But what we have at the moment, the difficulty we have at the moment, we have been able to resolve it. We are only praying and hoping that the system will be strengthened. We can only pray and hope that our expectations are met. So we are going to get the nurses to return to work today", he said on Accra-based TV3.

Meanwhile, The Minister of Employment and Labour Relations, Haruna Iddrisu has implored the nurses and midwives to return to work since their outstanding salaries will be paid by end of October.

He said 90 of the nurses were paid at the end of September 30 and about 258 have been processed for payment on Tuesday around 2pm.
