Judges fume over salary cuts

goodMagistrate and Circuit Court Judges are demanding a withdrawal of a new document that signals a reduction in their conditions of service.

The members of the lower bench are angry with government for allegedly reviewing their conditions without involving them.

The Judges claim government approved their salaries and conditions of service about four years ago only to introduce another reform with regards to their salaries.

A representative of the Magistrate and Circuit Court Judges, Aboagye Tandoh told the media that the Judges are angry over the unfair treatment meted out to them.

“Certain reforms have been done with regards to our salaries without any views or recourse to us. No inputs were made to us and we saw that there were some discrepancies so our members were of the view that the purported letter that was brought should be withdrawn.

“If they want to have any reforms, the beneficiaries must be engaged, just as any HR practice has been the case.

“We were surprised that as members of the lower bench we would have conditions reviewed even before we are notified,” Mr. Tandoh said.
