JUSAG threatens to go on strike over conditions of service

The Judicial Service Staff Association of Ghana has given the Government of Ghana a two-week ultimatum to address issues concerning their conditions of service.

If its demands are not met, the association says it will be left with no option than to embark on an industrial action .

Alex Nartey, President of JUSAG told Accra-based Starr FM that “Judicial Service has done its work and we haven’t had any response from government that’s why the staff are aggrieved because the judicial service staff is supposed to get their revised pay from January this year.”

“And we are ending the year, we haven’t gotten any information from the president. And so when leadership of the association met on 1st of this month, they decided to give government two weeks to get back to us on our salaries else we will meet again and advise ourselves.”

Mr Nartey further assured that “Judicial Service staff, we understand systems and there’s no way we will commit any infractions as far as ethical processes are concerned and so as far as we are concerned every righteousness has been fulfilled, and we think that we have justification to give government the ultimatum we have issued.”
