CLOGSAG calls off strike
The Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG) have called off the nationwide strike which lasted some three-week.
The Members begun the strike from Thursday, April 21 over the government’s failure to pay its members their neutrality allowance.
Following a directive from the Ministry of Finance to the Controller and Accountant General to pay the neutrality allowance, the Association has finally called off its three-week long strike.
The Association said the neutrality allowance formed part of a Memorandum of Understanding entered into with the government on January 20, 2022.
Scores of Ghanaians seeking the services of some government institutions had been left stranded since the action started weeks ago.
In Accra Thursday [May 12, 2022.], the Executive Secretary of CLOGSAG, Isaac Bampoe Addo, announced the new decision of the Association at a press conference.
He said CLOGSAG decided to call off the strike after the Ministry of Finance directed the Controller and Accountant General to effect the payment of the neutrality 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 11 May, 2022,” he said.
Mr Bampoe Addo however indicated that this decision was only “half time” of the strike and that they were calling it off to see what will happen at the end of May 2022.
