SOME NURSES RECEIVING NEGATIVE SALARIES, GRNMA RESPONSIBLE?

Published on

The Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association (GRNMA) is a Professional Association for all categories of Nurses in Ghana. Among the objectives of this association are: to advance the interest of the nursing/midwifery profession and promote a better understanding and dignity of the profession. According to GRNMA, membership is acquired and maintained through registration and payment of monthly and other dues instituted by the GRNMA.

In 2017 during the 16th Biennial Delegates Conference, the financial report revealed a lot of corrupt activities within the association (Corruption in GRNMA? Millions Unaccounted for as Leadership Bury Financials). These issues resulted in various categories of nurses complaining bitterly about the association’s activities. It seemed the association is doing the exact opposite of advancing the interest of the nursing and midwifery profession. As though that was not enough, deductions were also raised.

In light of the above situation, various nurses and midwives threatened to leave the association because they believed they were not consulted before the increment of the deductions and also the association does not have the welfare of nurses at heart. In 2017, the President of the association, Mr. Kweku Asante Krobea in an interview with TV3 said: “We did consultation and these increments they talked about did not come about by the decision of the President or executives. It is the delegates conference that voted on these increases.” He continued: “We believe in freedom of association so if they are deciding to break away, so let it be. We will move on with the discerning members of the association who believe in prudent management of funds and visionary leadership.”

Recently, some nurses have been receiving negative salaries. Some nurses who believed the association does not have their interest at heart found ways of exiting the association by canceling their deductions since there is no clear exit plan for nurses and midwives who want to leave the association.  Unknowingly to these nurses, the deductions were restored and backdated again which has resulted in them receiving negative salaries.
