Chief Justice nominee Justice Gertrude Torkornoo has said that there is a process ongoing to review the salaries of Judicial Service staff..
Speaking in Parliament during her vetting on Friday, she explained that this process is one that has always been in place, however, she said that the Judicial Service staff who began a strike following what they said were delays in salary review, believe that the process is too slow..
“There is a structure for the review of salaries on a bi-annual basis and that process started.
The staff I think, are of the opinion that it is going too slowly and this is why they are on strike but the process is very much going on.”.
She noted that the Judicial Service was in meetings on Thursday ensuring the issues with the salary review and process are completed and staff are given their due.
“It is not a process that is limited to the Judiciary
This comes after leaders of the Judicial Service Staff Association of Ghana Wednesday afternoon summoned members to an emergency meeting and declared an indefinite strike.
