Review Single Spine Now

...wide gap between junior and senior staff coupled with poor conditions of service and called for urgent steps to be taken to address the conspicuous disparities in the SSSS.

Review Single Spine Now

The Chairman of the Sunyani Technical University chapter of the Technical University Workers Association (TUWAG), Kofi Abrefa is calling for the immediate review of the Single Spine Salary Structure for the benefit of low income earners in the public service, especially junior staff, to ensure some parity in the structure.

He is proposing that either the basic salaries of junior staff are adjusted upwards or the annual percentage increase of public sector workers of ten percent is raised for junior staff only to gradually close the wide gap between them and senior staff.

Mr. Kofi Abrefa was speaking at a send-off ceremony in Sunyani in honour of seven retired members of the association who rendered dedicated service to the university while.

The retirees namely; Mrs. Janet Akua Animah, John Kofi Awuah, Richard K. Amponsah, Mrs. Theresa Ama Bronya, Frederick Hinneh, Emmanuel Kwaku Mensah and Yaw Gyemera; were each presented with a brand new refrigerator and other items.

Mr. Kofi Abrefa decried the wide gap between junior and senior staff coupled with poor conditions of service and called for urgent steps to be taken to address the conspicuous disparities in the SSSS.

Besides, he called on the management of STU to increase the medical allowance of staff from the current Gh.c 200.00 to Gh.c 400.00.

Mr. Abrefa further called for the inclusion of a representative of junior staffs on the university’s governing council as a matter of urgency.

For his part, the Vice-Chancellor of STU, Prof. Ing. Kwadwo Adinkrah-Appiah commended the association for recognizing the hard-work and contributions of its retired members and honoring them as such.

He hinted that the university will take a cue from this and take steps to acknowledge the contributions of staff who would be retiring in the near future.

Mrs. Janet Akua Animah, on behalf of the retired staff, expressed their profound appreciation to the association and the entire staff of the University for the gesture as well as the brotherly love shown to them during their working days.

  2. Salancrete Building Blocks From A Mixture Of Sand, Laterite And Cement For Sustainable Housing Construction In Ghana

    This paper assesses the suitability of Salancrete block – mixture of sand, laterite and cement – for urban housing delivery in Ghana. Three Salancrete blocks were moulded from four lateritic soil samples obtained from Fiapre, Magazine, Kotokrom and S-Poly, all in the Sunyani Municipality. Also, three blocks each were moulded for sandcrete and landcrete (laterite and cement), using 10% cement content in each case. The 28-day compressive strength values were 5.76, 3.78 and 3.09 N/mm2 for Salancrete, Sandcrete and Landcrete respectively. It was concluded that combining laterite and sand will produce a more suitable block input for sustainable housing delivery in Ghana.

  3. Towards A Sustainable Ceramic Industry In Ghana: An Assessment Of The Working Environment Using Five Forces Industrial Model

    This paper discussed ceramics as an industry that is capable of improving Ghana’s economy and providing direct and indirect employment, and penetrating the international market. The working environments of the companies within the local industry were analysed using the Porter’s Five Forces Industrial Model which revealed that the Ghanaian Ceramic Companies are competitively weak in the areas of exports, and not able to compete favourably with new entrants, although, strong in the area of raw materials and resource inputs. Study showed that the challenges within the industry can be nipped in the bud if academia, industry and government work indivisibly.
