Single Spine Pay Policy Has Failed Totally – TUC



Joshua Ansah, deputy general secretary of the Trades Union Congress (TUC) has said the Single Spine Pay Policy (SSPP) since its implementation has failed to achieve its purpose.

According to him, the SSPP has rather worsened the salary structure with some public sector workers receiving very low salaries.

Speaking to Beatrice Adu on The Big Bulletin on Thursday (5 May), Ansah said “it [SSPP] has totally failed in achieving its objectives. Because in 2010, we [public sector workers] hailed it. We actually called for it thinking that it is going to change our fortunes in terms of salaries but, it has rather come to worsen the situation.

“A lot has gone down the drain and we think that we need to resurrect all the things that didn’t go well; put them on the table and look at the pros and cons, what didn’t go well, what went well and together, we build a better structure for ourselves.”

He added that “the disparities are many, we can’t imagine that the single spine which was supposed to be one of the best structures of this country is now the worst. Those on the salary structure are now the least paid even below the minimum wage level. You can see it’s a big negative comparing it to the objectives in which the single spine was set up.”
