Good Deal ~ Teacher Unions, GRNMA, PSW and Others, Propose 60% increase on the 2022 Base Pay for 2023


Public Sector Associations and Unions in a letter referenced BA\7\SF.2\VOL.4 and dated, Thursday, November 7, 2022, have submitted proposals (60% increase on the 2022 Base Pay) for the base pay on Single Spine Salary Structure (SSSS) for the year 2023.

According to the letter which has the signatories of Isaac Bampoe Addo (Executive Secretary, CLOGSAG), Thomas T. Musah (President, GNAT), Eric Angel Carbonu (President, NAGRAT), King Ali Awudu (President, CCT-Gh, Dr. Francis Serebour (President, GMA), Perpetual Ofori-Ampofo (President, GRNMA), Nathan Coompson (National Chairman, GHOSPA) and Frederick Kporxah (General Secretary, GACRA), originally, the daily base pay (level1 step 1) was 10% above the National Daily Minimum Wage (NDMW).

It further stated that, over the years, as a result of accepting COLA instead of Salary increase and granting increases in National Daily Minimum Wage (NDMW) that were higher than the percentage increase in the base pay, a wide gap has been created between the NDMW and the Base Pay.

Currently, the 2022 daily Base Pay on the 2022 Single Spine Salary Structure (SSSS) is 16.26% below the 2022 NDMW.

In order to close the gap and restore the 10% point with respect to the NDMW, the daily Base Pay for 2023 shiukd be Ghc 14.88 plus 10% that is Ghc 16.37.

The aforementioned leaders in the letter to the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations reiterated that, due to the inflationary trends and the fact that 15% COLA has been granted on the National Daily Minimum Wage (NDMW) they humbly propose that a 60% increase on the 2022 Base Pay should be considered.
