The Ghana Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists (GAMLS) has called off its strike with immediate effect.
The association, in a statement, said: “On behalf of the National Executive Council of the Ghana Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists (GAMLS), we inform our members that a memorandum of understanding (MoU) has been signed on this day of 1 June 2018 between the Ministry of Health and GAMLS on the three key issues that compelled us to lay down our working tools”.
It added: “Leadership assures all members of our total commitment to the full implementation of every item in the signed M.O.U. for the benefit of our members and cherished Clients. We seek your continuous support at each stage of implementing the agreed roadmap. We further pledge that the Association will stand by members who have been intimidated or victimised by management owing to their participation in this strike”.
The members of the group, last week, issued an ultimatum to government to address their plight including disparities in placement on the single spine salary structure and their demand for the establishment of a directorate to cater to the affairs of lab technicians.
In a statement, GAMLS said their medical superintendents and directors, instead of supporting them by calling on authorities to attend to their concerns, are rather working against their interest.
The group said their supervisors do not have their interest at heart, forcing them to withdraw all their services.
