The Attorney General (AG) has asked the striking members of the Association of State Attorneys to go back to work today (October 21, 2016) or forfeit their salary.

The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Attorney General’s Department Owusu Ansah who confirmed this to Accra-based Citi FM said they are complying with the directives of the National Labour Commission (NLC).

The NLC directed that the State Attorneys return to work immediately.

But the State Attorney accused the Attorney General’s Department of failure to enforce an earlier ruling by the Commission.

The Association of State Attorneys declared an indefinite nationwide strike following failure on the part of the government to meet their conditions of service demand.

They are demanding payment of their vehicles, consistent salaries, Pension schemes and logistical support.
