A senior member of the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) has stated that striking doctors will not call of their strike as directed by the National Labour Commission (NLC).
According to Dr. Hardi Abdullah, any decision to that effect can only be taken at their general assembly meeting and so it will be “suicidal” for any executive of the Association to ask members to call of their three-week old strike.
“It is impossible to just call off the strike now as the NLC is demanding. It will be suicidal to make that decision and any executive who makes that call can be impeached. The decision to call it off will be decided upon at the next general assembly meeting,” he said on Starr FM’s Morning Starr on Thursday.
The National Labour Commission (NLC) after a meeting on Wednesday with the GMA and their employers, directed the two parties to resume negotiations and ordered the striking doctors to “take steps to call off” their three-week old strike “immediately”.
