An Inter-Ministerial Committee has been established by the Ministries of Employment and Labour Relations and Finance to undertake the review.

 

Speaking on the occasion of May Day, at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, in Kumasi in the Ashanti region, Nana Addo said his government will consolidate salaries for all civil servants.

He said "Having operated with the Policy since its inception in 2010, it is time to institute this review.  The team is expected to do a thorough review of both public and private sector pay policies, not only in Ghana, but also across the globe, to make informed recommendations for implementation.
