A planned industrial action by Members of the Komfo Anokye Doctors Association (KADA) has been postponed. The members have now set a new date, Friday, February 4th 2022 after management held an emergency meeting with the association on Monday.
Initially, the Doctors had threatened to embark on industrial action on Tuesday, February 1 2022 to demand their car maintenance allowance and 13-month salary arrears.
But a meeting between members of KADA and management of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) and representatives of the Health Ministry made members put their intended action on hold.
The industrial action has, therefore, been deferred to Friday, pending another meeting on Thursday for a final decision.
“The decision was taken after a show of some commitment by Hospital Management and the Ministry of Health to end the long-standing stalemate in the fulfilment of our SIGNED CONDITIONS OF SERVICE in 2019,” a press release signed by KADA Vice Chairman Dr Kwaku Nyame said.
“We hope, as agreed, earlier at the meeting of KADA executives with Hospital Management, that by the end of working hours on THURSDAY 3RD FEBRUARY 2021, there will be a clear concise payment schedule.
“We want to assure all and sundry, especially our cherished members, that KADA remains resolute and committed to its mandated cause.”
