Staff of Ghana’s Judicial Service has begun the first phase of their strike action today, November 2, 2015.

President of the group, Alex Nartey following their resolve to call off the earlier strike, told Starr News they had reached an agreement with the Labour Minister, Haruna Iddrisu, who assured them government is working on a fair payment plan for them but t after four months of waiting on the government to fulfill its part of the handshake agreement, the judicial staff have revealed their plea was not worked on as promised.
The statement further details a new schedule for industrial action starting Monday November 2.On Monday November, 2, all JUSAG members are wearing seen arm bands at work.
The directive for the strike noted that the strike will run through to Wednesday which will be followed by partial withdrawal of service where all staff are expected to report to work at 12noon until they finally withdraw full services indefinitely on November 9, 2015.
