KATH doctors reactivate strike ‘with immediate effect’

Must Read

Doctors at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH), Kumasi in the Ashanti Region, have laid down their tools with immediate effect over non-payment of their car maintenance allowance and 13th month allowance.

The action follows the failure of authorities of the hospital and the Ministry of Health to settle the allowances, which were part of their signed conditions of service directed by the Finance Ministry in 2019.

An initial strike declared on Tuesday, February 1, 2022 was halted after management of the facility offered to engage the leadership of the Komfo Anokye Doctors Association (KADA’s) on the matter.

But the Association, in a statement issued February 4, said; “We had hoped, that by the end of working hours on THURSDAY 3RD FEBRUARY 2021, there would be a clear concise payment schedule.”

With the allowances still not paid, doctors in KATH added that “We have decided to reactivate our INTENDED STRIKE ACTION WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT.”

The Association assured all members that it remains “resolute and committed to its mandated cause.”
