Ignatius Baffour-Awuah, the Minister of Employment and Labor Relations Minister has declared that public area labourers will partake in a 7 per cent ascend in their compensations.
He said the new augmentation will supplant the 4% ascent public area labourers delighted in 2021.
Talking at the 90th-commemoration function of the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) in Kumasi, Ignatius Baffour Awuah said the augmentation will produce prompt results.
“In return, we had to negotiate with the leadership of Organised Labour, and in the process, we had to agree that we had to be modest in our request on the national kitty.”
“The beautiful thing is that we are moving on, and we had agreed that coming into this current year, the 4 per cent will no longer exist and that we are going to give workers 7 per cent which is an increment.”
“It is my hope and belief that things begin to work better for the economy of our country, so we can give our workforce a better remuneration we can actually be proud of,” Mr Awuah said.
In 2021, the Trade Union Congress (TUC) agreed on the base pay increments for public sector workers, as part of labour negotiations with the government.
