Members of the Medical Laboratory Professional Worker’s Union are continuing with their industrial action despite a directive from the National Labour Commission(NLC)

The Labor commission on Thursday directed MELPWU members to end strike and return to the negotiation table with the government.

The MELPWU initiated their strike on June 17, citing the government’s delay in addressing their conditions of service.

A visit to Ridge Hospital and the Adabraka polyclinic reveals that strike is still in force despite the order.

The industrial action has significantly impacted public health services, leaving patients stranded and forcing many to seek more expensive laboratory services at private facilities.
