The Deputy Secretary-General of the Trades Union Congress, Joshua Ansah, has stated that Organised Labour will not back down in its demand for a 60 percent increment in their base pay.
“Compromise for what, there is no compromise. Our 60 percent still stands as it is, and there is no compromise. 60 percent in real terms is less than 18 percent and if care is not taken and inflation goes up today or tomorrow, then it is reducing further,” Mr Ansah said after a meeting with the government on Wednesday ended in another stalemate
The negotiations between the Government and Organised Labour over the proposed 60% increase in the base pay of public sector workers were suspended indefinitely after both parties failed to reach a consensus during Wednesday’s meeting.
Organised labour is demanding a 60% 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 percent increase, but the proposal was flatly rejected by organised labour.
After Wednesday’s meeting between the two, negotiations have been suspended indefinitely.
