Council of Labour in favour of Single Spine Salary Structure
The Greater Accra Council of Labour Division of the Local Government Workers Union (LGWU), on Tuesday disassociated itself from any move that would hamper the smooth implementation of the Single Spine Salary Structure (SSSS).
The union therefore called on government to remain resolute and ensure that the dateline of July remained unchanged.
Addressing a press conference in Accra, Mr Anthony Oppong, Regional Chairman of the Council expressed the hope that the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) reached between the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission and other organised labour associations, including the Trades Union Congress could reverse all problems associated with the implementation of the pay policy.
The MOU was a major step towards the implementation of the SSSS. It outlined the framework and guidelines for negotiating the base pay and relativities critical to the execution of the Single Spine Pay Structure.
The key elements of the MOU include name and composition of the negotiating committee, the convener, constitution of a quorum and functions among other engagements.
