JUSAG maintains demand for salary increment despite summons by National Labour Commission

The Judicial Service Staff Association of Ghana (JUSAG) has reiterated its calls for the approval and implementation of a revised salary structure for its members despite being summoned by the .

JUSAG gave the government a five-day ultimatum to act on a proposal submitted by the Judicial Council on salary increments of its members.

Speaking on Eyewitness News on Citi FM, General Secretary of JUSAG, Yakubu Abdulai said the Association will not back down on its demand for salary increments.

While acknowledging the legal backing of the National Labour Commission to invite conflicting parties for an amicable resolution of conflicts, Abdulai stated that the Association's demands for salary increments remain unchanged.

He noted that the government was already aware of the Association's demands, and a series of activities had been outlined to demand the approval of a proposed salary increment.

“Our plan is already known to the government and what we are asking for is a review of our salaries. The recommendation is already before the president to approve, and we have outlined a series of activities to demand that it is worked on, and if it is not worked on, then we will embark on an industrial strike,” Abdulai said.

He further stated that JUSAG is a law-abiding organization and would honour the invitation of the National Labour Commission. Abdulai concluded that the government must restore the cost of living allowance and that is the only way the Association will rescind its decision to strike.

JUSAG is scheduled to meet with the National Labour Commission on Wednesday, May 10.
