The Trades Union Congress (TUC), says the time has come for the tripartite committee, which determines the base pay of public sector workers, to review the variables used in arriving at salary increases.

The TUC said over the years, the major determinant had been inflation, but there is the need to bring in other variables, such as the real cost of living, because the previous method did not work to the benefit of employees.

It explained that inflation is just a representation of cost of living but not the actual, hence the need to use the cost of living.

Speaking at an Economic Forum on the 2021 mid-year budget, the Director of the Labour Policy and Research Institute of the TUC, Dr. Kwabena Nyarko Otoo, said the union is working to bring in other variables, such as the real cost of living.
