Payment of 2012 Single Spine Salary increase will commence in May
Accra, April 25, GNA - The Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning on Wednesday announced that, payment of the 2012 Single Spine Salary increase of 18 per cent would commence in May 2012.
In addition, the 2012 salary arrears for April would be paid in July ; while all other earlier payment schedules relating to the 2012 Single Spine salaries remain the same.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Ministry and copied to Ghana News Agency in Accra.
It said: "Owing to the rather short time span between completion of the 2012 Single Spine Salary negotiation and the minimum period required for the Controller and Accountant General's Department to input and process April salaries, it has not been possible to commence the payment of the 2012 base pay increment of 18 per cent in April as originally scheduled.
"Consequently the implementation of the 2012 Single Spine Salary Structure would be rescheduled."
The Ministry assured stakeholders that the new schedule would be strictly adhered to, and any inconvenience caused is sincerely regretted.
"The Ministry takes the opportunity to wish all workers a “Happy May Day” celebration in advance."
