The Executives of the Judicial Service Association of Ghana (JUSAG) have urged members to return to work tomorrow, May 30, 2023, following the temporary suspension of the industrial action.
JUSAG declared strike last week Wednesday, in protest over unpaid arrears and failure to review their salaries by the government.
In the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relation (MELR) and JUSAG dated May 29, 2023, the parties agreed that the industrial action should be suspended for negotiations to continue.
The signatories to the MoU were Ignatius Baffour Awuah, sector minister, and Samuel Afotey, JUSAG National President, and witnessed by Kow Abeka Essuman, legal counsel from the Office of the President, and Abdullai Yakubu, General Secretary of JUSAG.
The meeting featured the Office of the President, MELR, Office of the Attorney General and Ministry of Justice and JUSAG.
However, it was agreed that the strike would be suspended only for two weeks to enable the parties to deliberate in good faith and make the necessary arrangements for the review of salaries and related allowances of JUSAG members.
