GhanaNaija| August 22| 2022: COLA for July and August successfully paid
The government has paid the Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) for the month of August. With one-month arrears.
The arrears are for the month of July 2022
Modalities for Payment
The workers had argued worsening economic conditions had rendered their current salaries inadequate.
The government and the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission managed to beat down the 20% demand to 15% effective July 1.
Workers are however yet to receive the money.
Chief Executive of the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission, Benjamin Arthur, told JoyNews that payment will commence soon.
“We are certain that government will implement it. So nobody should have doubts. As soon as possible. Realizing the money in your pocket, we are working on the schedule, and I am sure, maybe in about two weeks to three weeks’ time, the government will come out public with the exact date.
COLA ends in December
The Ghana National Association of Ghana (GNAT) has said that the 2022 Cost pf Living Allowance that was negotiated to be paid for public sector workers shall end in December 2022.
The GNAT in a memo to its members on August 17, 2022, indicated that the COLA shall be paid in August 2022.
