A leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Gabby Otchere Darko, has commended all sides in the negotiation with labour unions following the decision to pay 15 per cent of Cost of Living Allowance (COLA).
He described this in a tweet as “a good display of leadership and patriotism from all sides. Well done!”
Government and Organised Labour on Thursday July 14 reached a consensus over the cost of living allowance workers have been demanding since May.
The two parties and their various representatives agreed on a 15 percent COLA at a crunch meeting held on Thursday.
Organised Labour had initially demanded a 20 per cent allowance, for which some worker unions proceeded on strike.
But after deliberations, the workers have agreed to accept 15 percent as COLA for the next few months.
