Staff of Judicial Service will resume work today for two weeks following a suspension of their strike. President of the Judicial Service Staff Association (JUSAG), Samuel Afotey Otu said after series of engagements and meetings with government, the leadership has agreed to suspend the indefinite strike until June 12 pending negotiations and arrangements for the payment of reviewed salaries and related allowances of staff.
He therefore, directed members to return to work from today May 30.
The Association declared an indefinite strike last Wednesday, May 24 over government’s failure to approve reviewed salaries for staff and pay outstanding allowances owed members.
Meanwhile a Lecturer at the University of Ghana, Dr Michael Kpessa-Whyte is expected to appear before the Supreme Court today to explain why he should not be held for contempt for his alleged malicious comments against the apex court.
He was summoned by the Court for allegedly using insulting words against it, in a tweet on May 19. He has since apologized and deleted the tweet.
