We’ll call off strike when we receive payment plan – CLOGSAG
The leadership of the Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG), has again vowed not to return to work until their demands are met.
Members of CLOGSAG have been on strike for almost three weeks.
They are demanding the payment of the Political Neutrality Allowance. CLOGSAG says it will not back down until the government honours a payment plan agreed on in January 2022.
But Executive Secretary of CLOGSAG, Isaac Bampoe Addo said they have suspended the strike because government has heeded to their demands.
Speaking at the news conference in Accra Thursday, he said the Ministry of Finance has agreed to direct the Controller and Accountant General to effect payment of the allowance.
“The rationale to step down the industrial action was based on the fact that the demand for the Ministry of Finance to direct the Controller and Accountant General to effect payment of the agreed allowance has been met on May 11, 2022,” Mr. Bampoe Addo added.
