Garu-Tempane Nurses Angry Over Delayed Salary
MAY 11, 2019 HEALTH

Health workers in the Garu and Tempane Districts of the Upper East region have not been paid their April salary.

This portal can report that most nurses are finding it very difficult to make ends meet in the prevailing economic hardship.

It's unclear the reason for the salary mishap, but affected staff are heaping blames on their various Human Resource Managers (HRM) whose responsibility it is to ensure they are validated and paid promptly.

Per the newly introduced system of salaries disbursement to government employees, a worker risk not being paid if the system fails to capture his/her details.

But in the case of the affected health workers, their superiors failed to validate them.

The District Director, this portal gathered keep snubbing the affected workers anytime they attempted seeking further explanation on the matter.

Attempts to speak to the District Director's proved futile.
