Universal Access to Healthcare Campaign (UAHCC), a non-governmental organisation, has proposed a non-partisan national dialogue to streamline working conditions for all professionals.
That, it explained, would put an end to frequent labour unrests that the country had been experiencing.
A statement issued in Accra last Tuesday and signed by the National Campaign Co-ordinator, Archibald Adams, urged the government, the Trades Union Congress and religious leaders to lead the process and ensure that all recognised professional association were represented and a well documented working condition agreed upon and signed by all stakeholders.
It also urged the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) to take a second look at its job valuation process and the placement of professionals on the single spine salary scheme.
The statement called on the government and the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) to quickly agree on a workable condition of service to enable striking doctors to return to work.
“Strikes usually end up in loss of lives which cannot be restored after the strike. The campaign is therefore appealing to the doctors to return to their consulting rooms while negotiating and government to quickly work with the GMA to resolve the impasse,” the statement said.
