PUBLIC SECTOR SALARIES UP BY 23% – Report

The government has adjusted the salary of public sector workers by 23 per cent.

This follows the conclusion of negotiations on the 2024 base pay.

Payment of the 23 per cent adjustment took effect from January 1, this year.

The Controller and Accountant General, Kwasi Kwaning-Bosompem, confirmed this to the Daily Graphic.

He said approval had already been given by the government for the payment of the 23 per cent adjustment.

Mr Kwaning-Bosompem indicated that the government had been very committed to the emoluments of public sector workers and that salaries had been paid not only in the right amount but on dates published for payment of salaries.

The Controller and Accountant General’s Department at the beginning of every year publishes the dates of payments for salaries of public sector workers.

“The government is very committed to upholding workers interests and has never faulted in paying salaries even when the COVID-19 pandemic struck in 2020,” Mr Kwaning-Bosompem said.

“In other jurisdictions, during the COVID-19 pandemic, salaries were cut and people were laid off, but in Ghana the government kept faith with workers by paying their salaries,” he added.

Mr Kwaning-Bosompem said the government had done its bit, and that it was expected that public sector workers would work hard to help to stabilise the economy.

“The economy has started showing signs of full recovery, and we must work together to stabilise the fiscal environment and prosecute stability in the macroeconomic environment,” the Controller and Accountant General said.
