The Implementation Of The Single Spine Salary Structure (Ssss) In Ghana

ABSTRACT The Single Spine Salary Structure (SSSS) is one of the major components of the Single Spine Pay Policy (SSPP) introduced by the Government of Ghana and got implemented in 2010, to regulate the payment of public service workers especially those under article 190 of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana. Notwithstanding the well-crafted nature and the objectives of the policy, its implementation has suffered challenges. Analysis of data collected revealed some of these challenges including high public expectations, dissatisfaction of the grading structure by some workers, inadequate financial and human resources facing the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC), inadequate education, conditions of service and allowances of workers. This has generated a lot of conflict among competing stakeholders including suspicions, disagreement and strike actions in the process. These challenges the study revealed have undermined the realization of the objectives. Proposals to improve on the implementation of the SSSS such as high collaboration by the stakeholders, depoliticize the process, financial availability by government to handle accommodation, massive education, logistics, and library. Also politicians should stay away from the tendency of promising high salaries for public service workers.
