Lab technicians to strike over Single Spine migration

The Coalition of Cheated Medical Laboratory Technicians has threatened an industrial action against government, if the Ghana Health Service and the Ministry of Health fail to rectify anomalies in their Single Spine placement.

The group has issued a two-week ultimatum for the MoH to address their issues or face the intended action.

In a statement issued and signed by Convener of the group, James Tetteh Ehiawey said they have made consistent pleas to authorities vis a vis their wrong placement on the Single Spine Salary Structure since 2012 but to no avail.

“There have been several correspondence between the leadership of the Ghana Association of Biomedical Laboratory Scientists and the Health Services Workers Union on one side and the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission and the Ministry of Health and Ghana Health Service.

“On 30th January, 2012 , the Ministry of Health directed the FWSC to resolve the placement issues of the technical officer (laboratory) cadre in a letter dated 30th January, 2012 with ref no. MOH/GAD 5.009. Since then several reminders have been sent to the FWSC by the association but to no avail.

“We, however, wish to state that if we don’t receive any favourable response from the Ghana Health Service and the Ministry of Health by 17th July, 2017, we will look at all legitimate tools available to us and deploy the appropriate one,” the group said, adding: “As law-abiding citizens we are taking the path of peaceful resolution in addressing our issues to forestall any industrial action.”
