law-and-justiceThe Government Hospital Pharmacists Association (GHOSPA) on Wednesday won a case brought against them by the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWAC).

In a meeting with the National Labour Commission (NLC), the stay of execution application brought by the FWSC was dismissed implying that the Commission has no other to option than to implement the grading system prepared by the Ministry of Health (MOH) and the Ghana Health Service (GHS).

By the ruling of the NLC, FWSC is obliged to forestall further industrial action by GHOSPA.  NLC will also have to adopt the grading system by the MOH and GHS.

Speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) on Wednesday after the meeting, Mr Stephen Corquaye President of GHOSPA said by the decision the strike would continue until FWSC implement the ruling.

“This was something we wanted to avoid; that all will go well so we can move on and go back to work but FWSC failed to reason.”

On the issue of the Market Premium, Mr Corquaye noted that nothing concrete was said on the matter and that NLC had referred it to the Presidency.

GHOSPA on April 8, embarked on a strike to press on government to pay their salary arrears as well their market premium.

Mr Charles Offei-Palm, Head of Research, GHOSPA Communication, told the GNA that members expect FWSC to abide by the ruling of the NLC.
