No Association Directly or Indirectly Can Renegotiate The (4%) Base Pay: GRNMA Says


We have picked signals of some Unions and Association who were not even involved in the recently ended Base Pay negotiations making promises of relooking at the negotiated rates.

We want all Nurses and Midwives in Ghana to note that no Union or Association directly or indirectly involved in the 2021 / 2022 *Base Pay negotiations* can go back and renegotiate the negotiated 2021 Base Pay (4%) and the 2022 Base Pay (7%). 

Organized labour involving Unions with the right to negotiate on behalf of Public Sector workers including Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association, negotiated with government on the Base Pay for 2021 and 2022.

Ideally, the Base Pay for the current year should have been negotiated by April of the previous year.

However, due to Covid-19, the Base Pay for 2021 could not be negotiated in April 2020 and therefore the 2021 and 2022 Base Pay negotiations were completed on 1st July, 2021 after weeks of negotiations. 

Following this, the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association which holds the Collective Bargaining Certificate on behalf of all nurses and Midwives in Ghana duly communicated the the outcome of the negotiation to all nurses and Midwives on its Notice Board in a notice communicated on 2nd July 2021.

It will be absurd for any Union directly involved or indirectly involved in the negotiation to come out and talk about any stand or contest the agreed outcome since we all had the opportunity to state our positions and views within the series of the negotiation meetings.

Let us all take note of this and trust in the leadership of Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association.
