Public sector workers demo today over poor working conditions

Members of the Coalition Against Organized Labour will today, Wednesday, 18 August 2021 hit the streets to demonstrate in demand of a pay increment for all public sector workers.

The group argues that the disparities in salaries of the political class and civil service continue to widen even in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic hence the need to petition the president over the matter.

Government increased the salaries of public sector workers by 4% which the workers say is inadequate.

They want public sector salaries to be increased by 25% instead.

They are also concerned about what they describe as poor working conditions and general high cost of living.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Police Service said it is also ready to provide security and ensure a peaceful match through some principal streets of Accra.

The protest is expected to begin from the Obra Spot through Kwame Nkrumah Avenue, Cedi House, and end at the Independence Square.
