TODAY marks the third-day since members of the Ghana Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists embarked on an indefinite strike action to drum home their grievances.
Since Monday, their decision to stay away from work had adversely affected healthcare delivery across the country.
Members of the public have called on them to rescind their decision, but Mr. Thomas Gyampomah, a past President of the association, said members would only return after government had met all their demands.
Speaking to THE PUBLISHER, he explained that their grievances had largely to do with the single spine salary structure.
He also bemoaned the lack of directorates for lab technicians in hospitals across the country, saying the situation was having a negative effect on their performance.
Concluding, Gyampomah lamented that monies generated by laboratories are used to finance other directorates and opined that government should ensure that accounts are created solely for laboratory technicians so that monies generated from their outfit would be used to their advantage.
