Doctors’ strike: GMA denies receiving revised gov’t proposal

The striking medical doctors have described as mere propaganda claims by government that it has presented them with a new Conditions of Service proposal.

Medical doctors in Ghana are on an indefinite strike over government’s inability to agree on their conditions of service. They have given government two more weeks to resolve their concerns or be hit with a stiffer withdrawal of their services in public hospitals.

Labour minister Haruna Iddrisu has, however, disclosed that government has presented a revised conditions of service proposal to the doctors. He said government is hopeful that the doctors will consider the new terms and resume duty.

Speaking to Kafui Dey on the Morning Starr Monday, deputy general secretary of the GMA Dr Justice Yankson said they have not received any proposal from government.

“I am saying on authority that we have not received any new proposal from the government. Those claims are all part of the propaganda they have resorted to. We cannot allow ourselves to be cheated and disrespected for this long,” he fumed.
