They hope to arrive at viable solutions when they finally meet officials on this subject.
“We referred to the upward adjustment of national service personnel allowance letter-number FWSC/D/SCR.3/vol.17/26 from the fair wages and salary commission (FWSC) dated November 14, 2016, which resulted in the approval of GH₵ 559.04 in a letter by the Ministry of Finance on the 14th of December 2016.
“The approved rate translates to 40% of the graduate entry level on the 2017 single spine salary structure.
“It is our understanding per the letter referenced FWSC/D/SCR.3/vol.17/26 that the 40% graduate entry-level rate will be applied, yet it is 2022, six years after, the allowances remain at GH₵559.04 with no review for increment.
“We hope to arrive at viable solutions when we finally meet,” a statement they issued on Friday May 20 said.
