Under the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association, the Nurses Educators’ Group (NEG) has given notice of its intention to start industrial action on August 17, 2022, in order to seek better working conditions.
The committee in charge of overseeing the academic progress of nursing trainees across the nation is calling for a reassessment of the rates for script marking, research, and practical assessment allowances, among other things, that they claim are out-of-date.
According to the organization, the country’s deteriorating economic realities have made this inevitable.
It said that the decision to strike was made during their annual general meeting, which was held at Sunyani on June 20, 2022.
In a press release forwarded to Ghanatodayonline.com, NEG noted that their decision was made in response to the government’s inaction on the allowance request, which came at a time when inflation and the cost of living in the nation were rising.
The Nurse Educators’ Group (NEG) has made a road map public regarding its intention to stop providing its services to the various health training facilities across the nation.
“The Group is constrained under the current economic problems and the tepid attitude displayed by the Health Training Institutions Unit (HTIU) of the Ministry of Health,” according to a release signed by the National Chairman, Bakinam Adamu.
