Staff of the National Identification Authority (NIA) remain optimistic ahead of their scheduled meeting with the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission today, June 14, where they will discuss their conditions of service.

The union had initiated a strike, which was called off following a directive from the National Labour Commission, allowing negotiations to proceed.

The strike had severely disrupted operations at various NIA centers, leaving numerous individuals seeking services stranded.

In an interview, the Secretary of the NIA staff, Kwabena Adu Kyeremeh, indicated that they might declare another strike if today’s meeting does not yield conclusive results.

“It is reasonable and fair compared to what our colleagues in other government institutions are receiving. Comparing their degrees or certificates that we are also holding. From masters level to diploma, and then the number of years of experience against what is happening in NIA, then we are going to be okay. Today is the El Classico. We are expecting the government to come home with a very good offer, and we will also accept it in the interest of Mother Ghana. 

“They have also indicated to the public that if they are not successful, they will declare the strike on our behalf, and it will be something that nobody should expect,” he stated.
