The Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association, GRNMA, has also joined teacher Unions to call for payment of twenty percent Cost of Living Allowance (COLA).
According to the Association, the plight of Ghanaian nurses and midwives is worsening each day due to rapid increases in the prices of goods and services across the country.
Speaking on News and Current Affairs Programme, ‘Behind the News’ on UNIIQ FM, the President of the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association, Perpetual Ofori-Ampofo refuted claims that the Association is riding on the back of similar claims by the four striking teacher unions.
She said GRNMA operates within organized labour and increasing cost of living also affects them.
She added that, government has been given enough notification about the worsening living conditions of nurses.
However, the Association does not intend to embark on an industrial action.
