The Fair Wages and Salaries Commission of Ghana says it will soon meet all stakeholders to determine if the 20 percent Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) demanded by teachers will be paid.
This comes after NAGRAT, GNAT and other teacher unions have given a June 30 deadline for government to pay the allowance or face a series of industrial actions.
According to NAGRAT, the current economic hardship has made teachers worse off. GNAT secretary, Thomas Musah Tanko also communicated that the current sluggish attitude of the government continues to affect the meagre earnings of workers hence the demand for allowances to be paid.
But the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission maintains that all relevant stakeholders must come on board for a final determination of the payment.
“It’s fair that stakeholders are able to propose the payment of COLA or any other allowance, but at the end of the day, we have to get to the table with organized labour, government and all other parties to determine whether Cost of living allowance COLA will be paid”.
“We are also yet to negotiate the base pay for 2023 so that it is factored into the budget. That is yet to be done to determine the minimum daily wage”, said Earl Ankrah, Head of Public Affairs at the Commission.
However, NAGRAT has made it clear that it members will have no other option than to embark on industrial action if their demands are not met by this ending, June, 2022.
