Ferdinand|EducationGhana|November 30|2023 Salary Negotiation resumes today after Workers rejected Govt’s 15% offer
Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) respectfully writes to invite representatives of the Government Team and Labour Unions/Associations to a meeting scheduled today Wednesday, November 30, 2022, to resume negotiations on the 2023 base pay for public sector workers.
Then negotiation is scheduled to take place at the Ministry of Health Conference room at exactly 2 pm.
The negotiations between the Government and Organised Labour over a proposed 60 per cent increase in the base pay of public sector workers have been suspended indefinitely after both parties failed to reach a consensus.
Organized labour is demanding a 60 per cent increase in the base pay on the single spine salary structure to compensate for an unstable economic climate and high inflation.
The government in the latest round of talks tabled a 15 per cent increase, but the proposal was rejected by organized labour.
After Wednesday’s meeting between the two, negotiations have been suspended indefinitely
The Deputy Secretary-General of the Trades Union Congress, Joshua Ansah, said Organised Labour will not back down in its demand for a 60 per cent increment.
“Compromise for what, there is no compromise. Our 60 per cent still stands as it is and there is no compromise. 60 per cent in real terms is less than 18 per cent and if care is not taken and inflation goes up today or tomorrow, then it is reducing further.”
Summary of salary negotiations (Wednesday, 24th November 2022)
1. Organised labour rejects 15% from the government, still insists on 60%
2. Meeting has been called off indefinitely
3. Today too the negotiations ended in a stalemate. No agreement was reached.
4. According to the labour unions, they started from 140% and came down to 60%. so they will not back down on the 60%
5. Labour Unions say the 60% increment is indirectly equivalent to only an 18% net effect increment
6. Labour says 15% CoLA is ending in December, so the 15% proposal by the government has a net effect of zero per cent
