Unemployed private nurses postpone picketing at Flagstaff Hse

The Coalition of Unemployed Private Nurses (COUPN) has postponed its planned picketing at the Flagstaff House.

A statement issued by the leadership of the Coalition said it has become necessary to postpone its picketing from July 17,2017 to July 31, 2017 following a meeting held with the Ministry of Health over its concerns raised.

The Coalition a week ago served notice of a nationwide demonstration  should government fail to post them to various health facilities across the country, in five working days.

The group gave the ultimatum at a press conference held in Accra and expressed their displeasure at government in failing to post their members after successfully completing nursing school over the past 3-7 years.

But the Coalition in its statement said it is pulling the brakes on its actions initially set for today just to enable leadership fashion out a strategic plan on their course.

“This change was necessary because of the encounter between the leadership and the Ministry of Health during our last meeting with them on the 13th July 2017. In the meeting was the Honourable Minister Mr. Kweku Agyeman Manu, Mr Robert Kudjo (PRO. MOH) and the Administrator (MOH).Upon the above mentioned meeting, the leadership met and the need for the postponement to give us the needed space to strategically plan towards this event for us to achieve a positive result,” the statement added.
