Ghana: Striking doctors, university teachers, others to lose salaries- Gov't by Idowu Olabode : August 11, 2015, 09:59:41 PM
Government will not pay the salaries of striking doctors and other public sector workers for the period they have stayed away from work.

A statement signed by the Employment Minister Haruna Iddrisu said: "Government wishes to remind all public sector workers of the provisions of the Labour Act 2003 (Act 651), which states among others that a worker on strike “may forfeit his/her remuneration in respect of the period during which he/she is engaged in the illegal strike.”

The statement comes at a time that doctors, University teachers, and Pharmacists are all on strike over one issue or another.

Government has described the strike by the doctors as illegal.

The statement therefore directed "all heads of government establishments where workers have embarked on illegal (partial or full) strike actions to compile and submit to their respective Ministers of State the list of workers who have been absenting themselves from work as a result of a strike or protest.

"The compiled lists are to be submitted to the Ministry of Finance on or before Friday August 14, 2015 for necessary action."

"By this statement, Government is once again appealing to public sector workers presently on strike to call off their action and return to work while negotiations continue in good faith."
