Mr. Alfred Tetteh, the Bono East, Ahafo and Bono Regions Chairman of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) said “it is unlawful to pay your worker below the minimum wage, deny them salary increment, leave, allowances and others they have to enjoy. 

The Union therefore urged the informal sector employers to endeavor to pay their employees not below the minimum wage of GH¢18.15 as agreed by the national tripartite committee representing both workers, government and employers in the country. 

In an interview with thefourlens.com news in Sunyani on, Mr. Tetteh expressed grief about the poor conditions of service for some non permanent workers in both public and the private sector.

He said per the Labour Law, casual workers are also equally entitled to the better working conditions of service as well as other benefits including the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) contributions, per the Labour Law.

Mr. Tetteh implored workers in both formal and informal sectors and casual workers to at all times have and demonstrate positive attitude towards work with commitment to effectively contribute to nation building.
