Gov't Short Changes Workers

By Lens
Listen to article

Last week, we published that Ghanaian workers are now seeing more evidence of the extent to which the Kufuor administration is prepared to use deceit and fraud to hoodwink the people of this country in their quest to retain power.

In the said article we made it clear that government has withdrawn the 30% salary increment that took effect from April 2004, following a World Bank/IMF directive to the government to suspend the implementation of the increment.

Though the Public Relations Officer of the Accountant-General's Department, Mr. Moffat, denied that the 30% increment would not be applied to the salaries of workers, events unfolding have confirm The Lens' story.

The Lens can confirm that the leadership of the Civil Servants Association and the Workers Forum are under severe pressure from enraged Ghanaian workers, who are demanding that the leadership should get government to restore the 30% increment or face the wrath of a disappointed work force.
