The Association of State Attorneys is threatening a nationwide strike if government fails to meet their demand to improved conditions of service.
The association has chastised the Finance Ministry, Attorney General’s Department and the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission(FWSC) for failing to implement some directives of the National Labour Commission(NLC) for their improved conditions of service including the provision of fuel allowances, harmonized salaries, Pension schemes,leave and clothing allowances,accomodation allowances and logistical support.
The Association claims they are only demanding what is legally due them, or they may be compelled to disturb the labour environment with an industrial action against government soon.
The president of the association of state attorneys Francisca Takyi Mensah in an interview with OTEC News, Kwame Owusu Achiaw,she said if the issue remains unresolved their concerns aren’t addressed in seven (7) days, this will threaten activities at the courts as all cases being handled by state attorneys will suffer setbacks.
