Fair Wages boss Smith-Graham resigns

The Chief Executive Officer of the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC), George Smith-Graham, has written to the presidency to tender in his resignation.

In a letter dated February 8, 2017, Mr Smith-Graham says his resignation will take effect on May 9, 2017 in line with his contract of giving a three-month notice before the action.

“By this letter, I wish to serve the required length of notice of three months.” Mr Smith-Graham was appointed head of the public sector salary-negotiating body in 2011 to see to the implementation of the Single Spine Pay Policy (SSPP).

Three phases of the implementation were achieved under Mr Smith-Graham, who was appointed by the late President Professor John Evans Atta Mills.

“It was a great honour to serve my country as the Chief Executive of FWSC over the last eight years,” he wrote in his letter to current president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

“During my tenure, I enjoyed the support of a dedicated team made up of Directors and staff of FWSC, as well as Organized Labour and the Ministries of Employment, Finance among others.

“I am very grateful to the Presidency and every person/institution that gave and continue to give me the needed support for the successful implementation of the SSPP.”

He said he wants to pursue other personal interests upon resignation.
