Ghana has gone through bad nationwide strikes in the country that affected service delivery and the outcome was that the citizens were affected. We will give you some instances that could have led to the new scheduled dates set from the concerned department.

It is almost two years now since the doctors strike that paralysed most activities in the hospitals. The government tried to plead with the doctors who had further claimed that they would resign from their official positions which would have left the country in a much more miserable state. The back and forth from the striking doctors and the government only led to the citizens suffering since only emergencies were being attended to.

In the last few years or so Ghana also oversaw another strikes which also happened by some of their employed citizens. We can recall the petroleum, transport and chemical employees who were aggrevated by their working conditions which did not match with those of their colleagues in the other foreign nations. They claimed to be harassed and still receive less salary that was not benefitting their households in any way. Regardless of this particular issue being because the staff were working for multinational corporations, the government role in it was minimal and not effective. Therefore as the government who is termed in many countries as the biggest employer should also look in to the multinational corporations in their countries and negotiate for better terms and conditions of its people’s remunerations.

The popularly known Judicial Service Staff Association of Ghana employees had also given notice to the government due to their unpaid arrears. This meant that all activities in the court had been frozen and the employees were not going to offer their services until the matter was resolved. In most countries judiciary is among the three important arms of any government. This strike however showed the opposite of that.
