The Judicial Service Staff Association of Ghana (JUSAG) have told their members not to report to work on Wednesday, November 13, 2019.

This they say will continue until further notice. JUSAG in a statement said after meeting with the National Labour Commission, they failed to come to a consensus on matters regarding the review of their salary.

They, therefore, say they are left with no option than to embark on an indefinite strike.

Portions of their statement read: "After our meeting with the National Labour Commission on 11th November 2019, the leadership of the JUSAG had a meeting with our Regional Executives and our rank and file. The resolved that since we have already complied with the procedures under the 1992 Constitution regarding our conditions of service, we should proceed accordingly"

“JUSAG is left with no option than to declare an indefinite strike action…” the statement said in part.

The association, however, said, “the security personnel of the Judicial Service, shall, however, report to work to protect life and property.”
