“We all know what happened when Dr. Yaw Anthony Baah convened a tripartite committee and secured a 4% wage increase in 2021 and a 7% salary increase in 2022. It is regrettable that the very persons in this nation who workers put their trust in to defend them when they go to the tripartite committee over their salary turn out to be such stooges to the administration of the day.”

“They attended the first meeting and agreed to form a technical subcommittee to develop a proposal to determine the 2023 salary increment and minimum wage.” They have now constituted this committee, and its members have no economic background.
They simply selected them from all of the unions and assembled them.”
“Without knowing the current inflation rate, the committee used the Bank of Ghana (BoG) algorithm to determine the 2023 percentage for wage increment.” “33 percent.”
