The Mortuary Workers Association of Ghana and the Environmental Health Workers are agitating over their exclusion from the 50 per cent basic salary incentive.
Speaking exclusively with GBC News, the Director General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS), Dr. Patrick Kuma Aboagye, said there are plans to absorb all such persons to benefit from the package.
It’s a negotiation. It’s not every nurse who is a frontline worker. It’s not every doctor who is a frontline worker as far as covid-19 is concerned. And so it’s not a wholesale thing, that’s why we need to engage them that even if they are, they are people whose responsibility is to manage the mortuaries in covid-19 centres and definitely their names are already on. We will take a look at their grievance.
