Minister of Employment and Labour Relations, Ignatius Baffour-Awuah has announced that public sector workers will see a 7 percent salary increment on their existing salaries.
He noted that the 7 percent increment on their salaries will replace the 4% increment public sector workers enjoyed in 2021
He made this revelation at the 90th-anniversary ceremony of the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) in Kumasi, adding that the increment will take place with immediate effect.
“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 percent will no longer exist and that we are going to give workers 7 percent 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.
