A court in Accra has granted an ex parte application ordering public sector workers across the country to call off their strike and return to work immediately.

The court granted the application Friday afternoon.

Government has been trying to use court processes to compel striking public sector workers to call off their strike.

Twelve worker unions – Ghana Medical Association, Registered Nurses Association, Ghana National Association of Teachers, Coalition of Concerned Teachers, Coalition of Local Government Staff Association of Ghana, etc – called a strike last week in protest against government’s decision to choose a trustee to manage their tier two pension contributions.
