INQUIRY FROM OUR TEACHER UNION LEADERSHIP
A statement released from the Office of the President of Ghana to the Speaker of Parliament, reported on Asmpa FM afternoon Political Show, dabbed, “Ɛkɔsii Sɛn?”, hosted by Osei Bonsu, on Tuesday 2nd March 2021, indicates that His Excellency the President of Ghana, will present the State of the Nation Address to the people of Ghana in Parliament on Tuesday, 9th March 2021.
Then, on Friday 12th March 2021, the Acting Minister of Finance, Hon. Ken Ofori Atta, will present the 2021 Budget Statement (from the 2nd Quarter) to the Parliament for approval.
In connection with my earlier inquiry from my abled and indefatigable Leadership concerning this year’s Base Pay Increment which I was promised I would be updated before the budget is presented to Parliament, may I humbly inquire from our Union Leadership whether 2021 Base Pay Increment Negotiation with the Government has been concluded; and if affirmative, what is the percentage increase as the current economic conditions in the country is highly unbearable to the ordinary teacher in the country as a result of daily escalating prices of goods and services.
