A look at the industrial scene in Ghana reveals strikes all over the place suggesting serious break down of sanity in Government – employee relations.

Members of Ghana Medical Association (GMA), psychiatric nurse, pharmacists and lawyers at the office of the Attorney – General among several others have either laid down their tools or are threatening to do so.

The fact is that Government has a duty to ensure that the state functions efficiently and that is not possible with the spate of strike actions.

On the other hand Government cannot meet unreasonable demands because they will become a prescedent to haunt it and other governments in the future.

In our view both government and striking employees need to engage in an open and frank dialogue to find a settlement which would be realistic and just.

We believe that this is possible if both sides are minded to pursue a broad national agenda rather than accepting the dictate of institutions like the IMF and the World Bank.

Let us solve our own problems our own way.
