It is declared by Government and Hospital Pharmacists Association (GHOSPA) that the members would get on a countrywide strike from Friday, 31st July.
The association has claimed that the Finance Ministry has failed even after a year to follow the directives of the Chief of Staff to address the complaints of pharmacists associated to their appointment on a single spine salary structure.
A statement from GHOSPA added that it is unfortunate that since august 8, 2014 the Sub-Cabinet Committee report has not been implemented as there was a clear unwillingness from the Ministry of Finance to carry out the directives.
Pharmacists in Public Health sector are expected to stop their services to out-patients if the industrial action comes to effect on date proclaimed.
Moreover the GHOSPA statement added that the strike would not be stopped until any undertaking for the implementation of the Chief of Staff’s orders is made.
The National Chairman of GHOPSA, Stephen Coquaye has explained to the Media that the Finance Ministry should be answerable for their planed action.
Meanwhile he said that several times they have gone to Labor Commission but it always replied to call to the Finance Ministry to answer but didn’t get positive answer.
So we have decided to go for strike from 31st July, 2015 and have written to the National Labour Commission. Nothing has changed after the four years of hard work, he added.
