NIA Staff suspend strike pending outcome of talks with Fair Wages Commission


The staff of the National Identification Authority (NIA) have decided to suspend their indefinite strike, which began on Monday, June 10, 2024. This decision hinges on the outcome of discussions with the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) scheduled for Friday, June 14, 2024.


In a statement released on Wednesday, June 12, the NIA staff explained, “The reason for this suspension is based on several interventions from stakeholders including the Minister of National Security, the invitation from the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission to the negotiation table, the advice of the mother union based on the ruling of the National Labour Commission today, and the public outcry of discerning Ghanaians.”


The staff emphasized that the FWSC has committed to negotiating in good faith. “It must be noted that the FWSC has assured us of their willingness to act in good faith in our subsequent engagements. However, this gesture will be put to test on Friday, 14 June 2024,” the statement continued.


The NIA staff warned that if the negotiations do not yield positive results by Friday, they are prepared to resume their strike. “Members are therefore assured that, if at the close of negotiations on Friday, the government fails to demonstrate true faith by granting us Institution Specific Allowances, we would not be hesitant to return to our industrial action,” the statement concluded.
