We’re working to review Single Spine Salary Structure, says FWSC

The Fair and Wages Salaries Commission (FWSC) says after ten years of implementing the Single Spine Salary Structure it is time for a review

The Fair and Wages Salaries Commission (FWSC) said it will commence processes to review the Single Spine Salary Structure this year. 

This comes on the back of calls from analysts requesting for a review of the structure after ten years of its implementation, due to some discrepancies and the burden it puts on the government’s expenditure.

However, the FWSC said it cannot on its own, undertake the implementation of the review process.

Earl Ankrah, acting director, Research, Monitoring and Evaluation and head of public affairs at the FWSC tells Asaase Business that “the consultant we’ve put together for the single spine pay policy gives us a recommendation that it’ll become necessary to review the policy periodically.”

“Ideally, we could even have done it about five years, but then, after 10 years of implementation, it has become necessary to maybe look at the entire policy and see the way forward for it.”

“This is not something that’ll be done by FWSC alone, it is something that involves all the social partners, the government, comprising of FWSC, Employment Ministry, Finance Ministry, National Labour Commission and all other agencies including the labour department and of course civil society organizations, academia, the media and all partners who will have something to say about this policy,” he stated.

The pay policy was implemented by the government in 2010 to regulate the payment of public service workers and also guarantee better public sector pay.
