Members of the Ghana Association of Biomedical Laboratory Scientist (GABMLS) have withdrawn their services.
The strike, which began on Monday, 21 May 2018, according to members of the Association, has become necessary as part of their efforts to push for better working conditions.
The lab scientists say the government has failed to respond to their demand for quality systems to be put in place in order to ensure quality service is rendered.
Dennis Adu Gyasi, Public Relations Officer of GABMLS, told Obeng Mensah Katakyie, sit-in host of Ghana Yensom on Accra 100.5FM on Tuesday, 8 May 2018 that: “The government has employed us to work but the system we are working in is not the best.
“We had discussions with the Minister of Health on 12 April that we want quality systems and quality standards to be implemented so we can also deliver quality work to Ghanaians but no response. And, so, we are withdrawing some of our services.”
“We have series of activities to undertake to register our grievances beginning 21st of this month and it starts with the withdrawal of some services,” he added.
