Staff of the various courts in the country under the Judicial Service Staff Association of Ghana (JUSSAG); have begun their indefinite strike action to press home their demands.
The leadership of JUSSAG on Thursday March 31, 2016, announced it was embarking on an indefinite strike action nationwide and directed all members throughout the country to adhere to the declaration.
JUSSAG indicates that the latest strike action became imperative following government’s delay in the implementation of a new service condition approved by the Judicial Council, as well as salary arrears.
President of JUSSAG Alex Nartey, said the government had not taken their issues seriously enough, describing the setting up of a five member committee by President John Mahama to commence negotiations on the conditions of service as an unfair turn.
JUSSAG last May embarked on a similar strike but were compelled to return to work following assurances by government to address their issues.
