General News of Tuesday, 2 April 2013
The Ghana Medical Association (GMA) has warned that any future meeting with the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) or any relevant state institution must have a clear agenda to solve their problems or “they will stage a walk out.”
The GMA has threatened to reactivate their strike after a National Executive Council meeting in three days following what they said were delays and diversionary tactics being employed by the FWSC.
Dr. Frank Serebour, General Secretary of the GMA said the FWSC has not shown any commitment to implement the decision reached by the National Labour Commission (NLC).
“So far, we have not been engaged so we are still waiting but as we rightly indicated, the National Executive Council will be meeting on Friday and so if we meet on Friday and we don’t have anything concrete on the table, then a decision will be taken as to the next line of action.”
He maintained that the leadership of the GMA will not avail themselves to any fruitless meetings and they will also not allow themselves to be “tossed up and down; we have had enough of that.”
Dr. Serebour added that the Labour Commission and the FWSC should have a clear agenda and attach a level of seriousness to meetings which will be convened to find a resolution to the problem.”
