The Aggrieved Public Sector Workers have informed the Ghana Police of their intention to embark on their demonstration to press home their demand for an upward adjustment of the agreed base rate of 4% which was the result of an earlier negotiation between the government and labour unions and the TUC.
According to the Aggrieved Public Sector Workers group, the 4% increment given to public sector workers is an insult to Ghanaian workers.
“Reason of the demonstration is to communicate back to the government that the 4% increment given to us workers is nothing but an insult to us Ghanaian workers” the statement indicated.
The letter to the Ghana Police signed by the leadership of the group added that the notice was to meet the public order act requirements.
The group called on all public sector workers to join hands to express their dissatisfaction through the peaceful protest through the principal streets of Accra.
The demonstration if approved by the Ghana Police Service will start from Obra Spot, through the Kwame Nkrumah Avenue, through Adabraka, Farisco Traffic light. The Peaceful protestors will move toward the Cedi House where they will head to the AU and end up at the Parliament House to present their petition.

Not less than 1000 protestors are expected to hit the street on the 18th of August 2021. Since the 4% base rate for 2021 was made public, the group has indicated its dissatisfaction and warned of a likely demonstration. In recent times, the Ghana Police Service has not given much clearance to groups and associations to embark on demonstrations citing COVID-19 as the reason. Members of the Aggrieved Public Sector Workers would have to wait for a favourable response from the GPS on the proposed date and demonstration.
In a related development, the #FIXTHECOUNTRY protest is scheduled to be held on August 4th, 2021. The group is yet to give a final confirmation of the demonstration taking place.
