Due to the government’s failure to accept its members’ revised pay and other perks, the Judicial Service Staff Association of Ghana (JUSAG) has launched an indefinite strike.

In a statement, JUSAG charged that the government consistently acted dishonestly in regard to its members’ pay, benefits, and other remuneration obligations.

The Association claimed that the government did not immediately address any of the recommendations it made to it about the implementation of the authorised cost of living allowance for members.

“You may recall, colleagues, that the Ghanaian government implemented the Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) in July 2022 for all public sector employees, including the workforce of the judicial service, in response to the dire economic situation the nation was and is still experiencing.

“In accordance with Articles 149 and 158(2) of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana, JUSAG presented its proposal for the review of wages for 2023–2024 to the Judicial Council on October 31, 2022, for consideration in its recommendation to the President.”

The Association has declared that, as of May 24, it will go on strike because it can no longer tolerate the maltreatment of its members.

“Our suffering is over. We can’t take it any longer. Nothing can be upright in an empty bag. After consulting with the Judicial Service Ladies Association of Ghana, the Senior Staff Association (SSAJUG), the Driver Association, the Finance Staff Association, and all relevant parties, the National Executive Council of JUSAG officially proclaimed an indefinite strike.
