The government and labor unions’ scheduled meeting to discuss an increase in basic pay has been postponed.

The different labor unions were anticipated to meet with representatives from the Finance Ministry, Fair Wages and Salaries Commission, and Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations on Tuesday to continue the discussions after the last meeting concluded without a resolution.

However, because the government was not sufficiently represented, the conference was canceled.

According to media reports, the sole representatives from the government side were Ignatious Baffuor Awuah, Minister of Employment and Labor Relations, and Mr. Bright Wireko-Brobby, Awuah’s deputy.

They departed early to take care of pressing parliamentary business.

This meeting marks the sixth time the two sides have discussed the unions’ demand.

For some time now, organized labor has been negotiating with the government to determine its basic wage for the upcoming year.

The Union has rejected the government’s offer of an 18% raise at around five meetings with the government, all of which have ended without a resolution.

The labor unions have committed not to bargain for anything less than a 58% base salary increase in response to this demand.
