President Akufo-Addo has approved the Judicial Service Staff Association of Ghana’s (JUSAG) revised salaries and other allowances.
As a result, the Association applauded the decision and congratulated the President.
JUSAG had complained that the government had not responded quickly to its proposals regarding the implementation of the approved cost of living allowance for members.
They then requested that Her Ladyship Justice Gertrude Sackey Torkonoo, the Chief Justice, intervene.
A statement issued by JUSAG said the intervention of the CJ has yielded positive results.
It said, “We are glad that her ingenuity and exceptional leadership with the support of other stakeholders led to the conclusion of the engagement on the 15th of June 2023 with an understanding that implementation of the reviewed salaries will take effect in July 2023.”
“We are reassured by the letter of Her Ladyship Honourable Chief Justice dated 13th July 2023 which confirms that His Excellency the President of Ghana has approved the new salary structure, and implementation will be done in the month of July 2023 as indicated by the Ministry of Finance at the close of engagement,” the statement added.
