Manhyia District Hospital Nurses Strike Called Off

Spread the love

The leadership of the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association has called off the strike by nurses at the Manhyia District Hospital as well as suspended the planned road map to the escalation of the strike.

The suspension of the industrial action, according to a statement issued by the GRNMA, is to allow the committee set up by the National Service Secretariat to investigate the actions of the Ashanti Regional Director of the National Service Scheme (NSS) whose verbal abuse of a nurse led to the strike, and to ensure that patients and clients do not suffer unduly.

The nurses embarked on an indefinite strike Friday morning to demand the dismissal of Alex Opoku-Mensah, the NSS boss following his verbal abuse of a nurse at the facility.

Below is the statement issued by the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association.

 

PRESS RELEASE
The leadership of the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association wishes to inform its members, the general public and the media that its employers, the Ministry of Health and the Ghana Health Service have reached out in writing to condemn the actions of Mr. Alex Poku Mensah and has further called on the leadership of GRNMA and the entire Nursing and Midwifery Fraternity to remain calm and withdraw the intended and roadmap to embark on an industrial strike, and allow for the due administrative processes and investigations to be conducted by the National Service Secretariat for a final determination on the incident.
It is worth noting that other stakeholders including our dear patients and clients and the general public have also formally and informally condemned the actions of Mr. Alex Poku Mensah and have pleaded with the leadership of GRNMA to rescind its decision on embarking on a full scale strike action and resume nursing and midwifery services at the Manhyia District Hospital
In view of above, the leadership of the GRNMA announces that it has called off its strike in Manhyia District Hospital and the intended road map for a full scale industrial action to allow the committee set by the National Service Secretariat to carry out its mandate and to ensure that our patients and clients do not suffer unduly.
We therefore call on all our dear nurses and midwives especially those in Manhyia District hospital to kindly adhere to this directive and retum to work tomorrow, 3rd December, 2022 and continue providing safe and quality nursing and midwifery services to the people of Manhyia and its environs.
We are grateful to our members, the media, our employers, the National Service Secretariat, Public Services Commission and other stakeholders for stepping up to the occasion and doing what is right.
We call on the Public Services Commission, Ministry of Education, the National Service Scheme, the Ministry of Health and all other relevant institutions in this matter, to ensure that the committee completes its work on or before 16th December, 2022 so that this matter can be put to rest.
We reiterate the need for Manhyia District Hospital and the entire body of employers within the health sector space to train staff on Team Work and Team Building to forestall unnecessary display of egos within the work environment which does not contribute in any way to positive patient outcomes.
Public Officers are entreated to serve Ghanaians with love and respect and desist from using their powers to intimidate, threaten or undermine others in the public service and the good people of Ghana.
Unity is Strength!
PERPETUAL OFORI-AMPOFO (FWACN, FGCNM) PRESIDENT
DAVID TENKORANG-TWUM, Ph.D (FGCNM) GENERAL SECRETARY
