Accra, April 27, GNA – The Judicial Service Staff Association of Ghana (JUSAG), on Friday expressed concern about the non-payment of subventions due the Judicial Service since the beginning of 2012.
A statement jointly signed by Mr Francis Brakwah, Chairman, and Mr Derrick Annan, Secretary, of JUSAG, copied to Ghana News Agency in Accra, noted that the non-payment had occasioned uneasiness among the entire workforce of the Service.
It therefore, called on the Government to pay or release the requisite subventions into the Judicial Service Account by Monday, April 30 “Or else we reserve the right to advice ourselves”.
“This will forestall the simmering disturbances by the rank and file of our membership.”
The statement said the Executive Committee of JUSAG had on several occasions consulted the management of Judicial Service about the agitations and concerns expressed by the entire membership.
It said: “Our members are beneficiaries of certain allowances that emanate from the subventions paid into the Judicial Service Account. The continued non-payment of subventions to the Judicial Service has brought untold hardships and misery to the families and households of our members.
“Thus, very uncharacteristic of our association, the prevailing conditions and the overwhelming anxiety from our members have necessitated this press release.”
