cediThe Agona District Council of Labour has  asked government to rescind the  decision to freeze the increase of salaries for  public sector workers, as announced in the  2014 budget statement.

According to the Council, the idea would bring untold hardships to public sector workers.

Mr Francis Odoom, Chairman of the Council made the call when he interacted with  the Press at Agona Swedru to wish workers a prosperous New Year and many happy returns in 2014.

He said public sector workers went through tough times when utility tariffs were adjusted.

He stated that in spite of  this,  government offered only 10 percent salary increment to workers which was woefully inadequate.

Mr Odoom expressed the hope that government would work around the clock in 2014 to ensure peace and stability on the labour front.

He appealed to public sector workers to go the  extra mile at their various workplaces to enhance productivity.
