- Coalition of Unemployed Nurses and Midwives in the Upper West Region are threatening to picket at the Flagstaff house should government fail to post them to work
- Their calls come after two years of having being unemployed
The Coalition of Unemployed Nurses and Midwives in the Upper West Region say they would be left with no option than to picket at the Flagstaff House should government fail to expedite action on their employment and subsequent postings.
Expressing the view of the group, secretary of the Coalition, Abu Stephen Sunbamaala explained that all nurses have run out of patience stating that granted government does not heed to their call within a week, they would be moved to take drastic action.
“We have run out of patience, our skills are becoming obsolete and our professionalism fading. Staying without jobs is not only frustrating but demotivates our parents in taking care of our younger ones in school,” he stated.
The unemployed nurses and midwives further explained that due to “a train and retain” bond they were made to sign before their enrollment into the various nursing training colleges in the region, they are unable to get employment in private health facilities. Government has therefore been given a one-week ultimatum to address their concerns.
