The Senior Staff Association of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra, has sued the management of the hospital at an Accra High Court for initiating processes to sanction them.
The association has accused the hospital’s board of directors and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Gilbert Buckle, of mismanaging its finances, leading to shortages in drugs and other essentials.
The management, however, denied the allegations and dragged the five- member executive before its disciplinary committee.
In the suit, the association is praying the court to among other things, declare the disciplinary procedure against them null and void.
It wants the court to “restrain the defendants and their agents from convening a board meeting of any kind, and decide on recommendations or matters submitted to them by the Disciplinary Committee in relation to alleged misconduct perpetrated by the plaintiffs”.
Besides, the association further prayed the court to restrain “the defendants, their agents from awarding any sanctions orally or in writing against the plaintiffs or in their personal capacities by way of warning, suspension, freezing of salary, dismissal or any other sanction of whatever description prescribed by the code of conduct of GHS”.
It is also seeking the court to declare a perpetual injunction “restraining the defendants from victimising and harassing executive of plaintiffs in the discharge of their normal duties at KBTH”.
