The Government and Hospital Pharmacists Association (GHOPSA) is scheduled to meet the National Labor Commission (NLC) on Monday for negotiations over their migration onto the Single Spine Salary Structure (SSSS).
The Pharmacists who have been on a 3-week strike insist they will not return to work because they are dissatisfied with the premium the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) is offering.
The Executive Secretary of GHOPSA, Ernest Owusu Aboagye in an interview with Citi News
said: “the Labour Commission has stepped in to resolve the issue with the compulsory arbitration and the Fair Wages has indicated their readiness and we are going to indicate our readiness by close of today, we will be writing to the Labour Commission.”
But according to him, the strike has not been called off saying, “in the mean time, the strike is still on.
We can’t be on strike and be negotiating at the same time because of that we are convening a national delegates meeting in Cape Coast on Thursday.”
