For the seventh time, a meeting between Organized Labor and the government over the demand for a 60% increase in base pay on the single spine salary structure ended inconclusively.
This is due to both parties’ inability to reach an agreement on the proposed percentage.
According to Organized Labor, the demand for a 60% raise is due to the current economic climate.
Speaking to Citi News on the sidelines of a media briefing, the Deputy Minister for Employment and Labour Relations, Bright Wereko-Brobby, explained that, “since the beginning of the year, this has been our first meeting, and so we recapped what we have been doing.
We have both agreed to meet tomorrow, January 11, 2023, to finalise our negotiations. We are working very quickly. Tomorrow God willing, we will share any information that will come up”.
Asked if government will pay arrears, Mr. Wereko-Brobby assured that “anytime we conclude, government will do the needful”.
