PUBLIC SECTOR WORKERS TO DEMONSTRATE AUGUST 18 OVER THEIR WA …
Public sector workers have announced a demonstration against the recent 4% and 7% increments in their wages.
The demonstration is set to take place on Wednesday, August 18 in Accra.
The workers said they have presented their notification letters to the Accra Regional Command of the Ghana Police Service and already approval has been given.
The leadership of Organised Labour has recently come under severe criticism for accepting the salary increments by the aforementioned percentages for public sector workers.
Some labour groups claim the 4 and 7 percent are disappointing and unfair to workers due to the impact of the Covid-19, but the leadership of Organised Labour has argued that it accepted the percentage to allow the government employ over one million workers into the public service.
Reacting to the development on Tuesday, July 27, the Lead Convener for the Aggrieved Public Sector Workers, Norbert Gborgbotsi, dared government to invite public sector workers to come up with a redundancy programme and many public sector workers will apply.
