Gov't drags doctors before Labour Commission over resignation threats

Government has dragged the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) to the National Labour Commission (NLC) in an attempt to stop them from following through with the threat to resign if their conditions of service are not met by June 30.
In a communiqué issued by the GMA, the Association said it would not entertain any further delays in its quest to get detailed conditions of service from government.

But government had indicated to the GMA it will be unable to meet their request within the stipulated time frame.
In an interview with Citi News, the General Secretary of the GMA, Dr Frank Serebuor, who disclosed the NLC invitation, said he was unsure what the meeting was about because no details were given.
“We are also wondering why we are being invited because the letter that was written was very short. We are being invited to a meeting on Wednesday at 2pm so we want to go and see why they are calling us,” he explained.
According to him, they are honouring the invitation since the Association wants to avoid a situation whereby “somebody will use these things as a propaganda tool to say that when they called us, we didn’t come so we will be surprised to hear that if we don’t go, they will tell us that they were about starting negotiations at the National Labour Commission and we didn’t.”
