According to ADAM-GH’s explanation of his findings to the media, Dr. Yaw Baah, who oversees salaries and working conditions at the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), and the TUC have plans to compromise once more during the tripartite committee meeting to discuss negotiations for a salary increase in 2023.
We all know what happened when Dr. Yaw Anthony Baah went on one tripartite committee sitting and negotiated for 2021 salary increment of 4% and 2022 salary increment of 7%. It is unfortunate that the very people workers in this country put their trust in to defend them when they go tripartite committee with regards to their salaries, but instead turn out to be so stooge to the government of the day”
Furthermore, he claimed that Dr. Yaw Anthony Baah was unaware of the financial predictions for 2022 before agreeing to the 7 percent and that he was also ignorant of the inflation rate, which is currently a significant burden on the workers and is making it difficult for them to even live.

They went to the first meeting, and they agreed that they should form a technical sub-committee that will come up with a proposal to determine the 2023 salary increment and minimum wage. Now they formed this committee, and the members of this committee have no economic background. They just picked them from all the unions and put them together. “
