CLOGSAG on strike
The Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG), has directed all members in the various ministries, departments and agencies to stop reporting to work from today, Thursday, January 20, 2022.
In a statement signed by the Executive Secretary of the association, Isaac Bampoe Addo, all relevant stakeholders have been served with notice of the action since December 22, 2021.
“This is to confirm National Executive Council (NEC) decision that from 20 January, 2022, the Civil and Local Government Association, Ghana (CLOGSAG) will embark on nationwide strike to press home their demand for better conditions of service. By this letter, all CLOGSAG members in the Ministries Departments, and Agencies as well as the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies are informed to stay at home from Thursday 20, January 2022 until further notice.”
This is in protest against government’s supposed refusal to heed their request for better conditions of service.
CLOGSAG says more than a year since their proposed salary structure was sent to the Ministry of Finance, they are yet to receive a response.
