Members of the Judicial Service Staff Association of Ghana who had earlier declared a strike action have been sued by the National Labour Commission (NLC).
The commission has argued that the strike is illegal and that all members should return to work as both parties were still in negotiation and have not yet exhausted the process of negotiation.
"The strike is clearly in contravention of the Labour Act and clearly JUSAG is acting in a lawless manner… it’s unfortunate and as a country we must respect our laws,”executive secretary of the commission Charles Adongo Bawa Duah insisted.
