Suit Striking doctors sued

The plaintiff describes the industrial action by doctors as “illegal” and is therefore praying the High Court “compel the defendant to go back to the negotiation table” since they provide essential services.

The Ghana Medical Association (GMA) has been sued by Listowell Nana Kusi-Poku, General Secretary of the United Front Party for embarking on strike.

The plaintiff describes the industrial action by doctors as “illegal” and is therefore praying the High Court “compel the defendant to go back to the negotiation table” since they provide essential services.

“While the defendant is entitled to its demands as far as improvement on existing conditions are concerned same must be done on a gradual basis and the defendant’s employer ought to consider these demands holistically within the context of existing resources available to it so as not to default its implementation in the event that it finally accedes to its demands.”

According Kusi-Poku, the conduct of the GMA is “quite disturbing in view of the crucial role medical doctors play in any nation’s life and wondered if a strike action should not be the last resort especially since it had not heard of any negotiations between the Government or its representatives which had broken down preceding the announcement that the defendant was embarking on a strike action.”

The Ghana Medical Association declared a strike action a week ago after their negotiations with government hit a deadlock and have threatened to resign en bloc if their demands are not met.
