Next industrial action would be disastrous – GHOSPA warns
The leadership of the Government and Hospital Pharmacists Association (GHOSPA) is cautioning government that they will not restrain their members who intend to embark on a nationwide demonstration over their migration onto the Single Spine Salary Structure.

The pharmacists argued their migration has been long delayed coupled with distortions in their salaries, a situation which resulted in many of the health officers receiving less than one hundred Ghana cedis as salaries this month.

The pharmacists who have sent a petition to the president say if their concerns are not addressed in January they will stop work.

This time, the association’s national president Stephen Corquaye says his executives will not restrain their members until all concerns are addressed.

“GHOSPA executives have been engaging Controller [and Accountant General] and all the stakeholders to try and resolve those anomalies as far back as September, unfortunately, this December is the worse of the salaries our members got…

“We have come to a situation where we have used all the available means that should have addressed that issue, and yet still we are where we are; and so the entire membership are losing confidence in the leadership, and I can assure you that the next industrial action could be disastrous.”
