Health workers in Ghana who embarked on strike on Monday over poor working conditions, have suspended their action.

Their strike had left many patients stranded at hospitals across the country.

The strike action was activated after negotiations with the government ended in a stalemate.

The health workers made up of nurses, midwives and other service providers such as Physicians Assistants and Registered Anaesthetists will now resume work on Thursday.

Ghana’s national labour commission had told the health workers not to embark on the strike describing it as illegal.

But the workers refused and insisted that their demand for improved working conditions be met before calling off the strike.

An injunction was then filed by the Labour Commission which was granted by the court.

Leaders of the striking health workers have now been served with the court injunction forcing them to suspend the strike and return to the negotiation table.

At a news conference in Accra, the National President of the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association Perpetual Ofori-Ampofo warned against victimization of their members following the strike.

The health workers have also rejected claims that their strike was politically motivated ahead of general elections in December.
