NEC OF GRNMA, SUSPEND THE INCREASE OF OUR ASSOCIATION DUES AND BUILDING LEVY IMMEDIATELY
This petition made change with 1,289 supporters!
The increase of the grnma dues from 1.5% to 2.0% of nurses and midwives basic salary and the 100% increase of the nurses building levy from 10ghc to 20ghc is the most insensitive decision ever to be taken by the association.
This is because Nurses and Midwives all over the country continue to suffer from several challenges with less or sometimes no support from the association.
Moreover, the association has failed to account for how the dues and building levy has been used in the past years.
The association has also failed to account for proceeds from the current completed Nurses guest houses which are running full time.
More seriously, the composition of the delegates who represented the various regions at the just ended Biennal Conference which voted in support of these increments was in breach of our association's constitution which states that the various regional councils are to vote to nominate delegates to represent the various regions. As much as 7 regions hand picked their delegates which makes it illegal for them to be seen as true representatives of the various regions. Hence, every decision taken by these delegates is Null and Void.
Also, how all the three (3) items which were up for increment were bundled together for voting at the just ended conference was a slap in the face of true democracy and a communist tactics deployed to tie the hands of the ordinary nurses who were seen as 100% against the increment of the dues and building levy but seemed to support the increment of the NURSES FUND which happens to be the hope of the ordinary nurse in Ghana now.
Lastly,the decision of the current national executives to go in for a GHC 50 million loan for the completion of all ungoing building projects of the association without consulting the grassroot is criminal and insensitive to the plight of the poor nurses. It's not compulsory for the current executives to complete these projects before the end of their term of office. The idea of them leaving a legacy whiles the poor nurse suffers to pay up the debt left is very wicked,insensitive and in bad faith.
With these points, we call on the NATIONAL EXECUTIVE COUNCIL OF GRNMA to suspend the implementation of these hikes with immediate effect.
The nurses/midwives in this country deserves better than this. 1.The nurses and midwives deserves a better condition of service which will be implemented by all stakeholders in the health sector. 2. The nurses/midwives deserve soft loans with relatively low interest rates so as to support their projects and small businesses. 3. The nurses/midwives deserve a comprehensive health fund/policy which will support the various staffs who suffer serious defects and ailments in their line of work everyday.
The Ghanaian nurse or midwife deserves nothing but the best. Thank you
