A 30% base salary raise has been agreed upon by the government and organised labour.

The government has boosted basic pay by 30% for the fiscal year 2023 as a result of multiple talks with Organized Labour.

Beginning on January 1, 2023, the increase will be in effect.

This comes after a meeting with organized labour on January 12 following eleven rounds of fruitless negotiations.

"The base salary has been raised by 30% for the fiscal year 2023...

As I indicated, this ends the 2022 COLA of 15% of base pay wage, according to Ignatius Baffour-Awuah, the employment minister, who made the announcement shortly after the decision was made.

A 30% base salary raise has been agreed upon by the government and organized labour.

Organized Labor initially requested a 60% percent increase and held firm to that demand despite numerous interactions with the government during the base wage discussions.

The public sector employees chose to lower their initial 60% demand to 58% after rejecting the government's initial 18% offer.

Organized Labour did, however, agree to a 30% rise in the base wage after their meeting with the administration on Thursday, which also included Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta, who had skipped all previous meetings.

Dr. Yaw Baah, the General Secretary of the Trades Union Congress (TUC), thanked the government for this fresh step.

"The Leadership of organized Labour would like to extend our sincere gratitude to the government for providing public sector employees a 30% basic wage rise for 2023. We are relieved that everything ended amicably today.
