Members of the Judicial Service Staff Association (JUSAG), yesterday, put on red bands to serve notice of their intended indefinite strike to back demands for unpaid outstanding allowances.

They were however, seen busily executing their responsibilities yesterday.

Speaking to The Ghanaian Times, president of JUSAG, Alex Nartey, said they would continue to press home their demands, until their grievances were resolved.

According to him, only their first and second quarter allowances had been paid, leaving the third and fourth quarters.

He said the workers would continue to wear the red bands, and “if the government fails to address our demands by close of work Wednesday, we would commence a partial withdrawal of services”.

Mr. Nartey said, members would report to work at 12 noon from Thursday to Friday.

“We will continue to wear the red band and by 4 p.m. on Wednesday, if we do not see any remedies to our concern, we would embark on a partial withdrawal of service,” he said.

Mr. Nartey said if the problems remained unresolved by November 9, the association would embark on a nationwide indefinite strike.

He said landlords were chasing their members for rent which have expired, among other responsibilities, which must be catered for.

Mr. Nartey urged all members across the country to continue to stick to the stages of strike.

Attempt to speak to the Judicial Secretary, Alex Owusu Acheampong, on measures put in place to address the anomaly proved futile.

JUSAG, on Friday October 30, issued a statement, threatening a strike action should the government fail to address their concerns.
