The Deputy Coordinator of Tertiary Education Institute Network (TEIN) of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Ekow Djan said, four percent (4%) Salary Increment is an insult to the Ghanaian public worker especially teachers.
The former Deputy National Secretary of the Teacher Trainees’ Association of Ghana (TTAG) has served a notice calling for an immediate withdrawal of the 4% Salary Increment. He added that, leadership of teacher unions must go back to the negotiation table to reconsider this decision as early as possible.
He however said, the Public worker who enjoyed 10% & 11% increments annually under Former President John Dramani Mahama’s govermment owes him a highly level of gratitude.
According to him, undoubtedly, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has, once again, failed public workers but has taken delight in ballooning his monthly salary from GH¢29,899 in 2016 to GH¢ 47,277 in 2020.
“It is no doubt that President Akufo-Addo’s main motive of becoming President is to enrich himself and to satisfy his personal interest at the expense of the poor Ghanaian. Very pity!” He said.
