The Coalition of Unemployed Registered Nurse Practitioners-Clinical and Preventive Nurses threatened to picket the Jubilee House, Finance and Health Ministries for failure to ensure members are seconded to health facilities.
They gave the government a week-long ultimatum to deal with the factors responsible for the delay in publishing them.
“We are going to put ourselves in groups and march to the Ministry of Finance and also the Ministry of Education to work with them. Some will be at the Jubilee House as well. At the end of the day they will give us part of their salary because we work with them,” group president Charles Apanago said at a press conference.
The 2019 group of the year was unemployed for three years, leading some to take on menial jobs to survive.
Members of the group at the press conference wore red armbands and headbands to register their displeasure with the government.
They say that ten months after going through the process required for postings, colleagues with degrees and diplomas were successfully seconded, leaving their limbs hanging.
“We asked the government what evil we did that led to us being discriminated against after paying large sums of money and undergoing required college training and still staying at home after accessing the recruitment portal since November 2021. Meanwhile, the Has the government made the necessary arrangements with the Youth Employment Agency (YEA) to recruit, train and employ SHS graduates to carry out our duties?”
They describe the current order as discriminatory and threatening to national security.
Meanwhile, the group says the delay is causing members to lose skills and knowledge gained in the field.
