The leadership of the Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG), has directed all members in the various ministries, departments and agencies to stay off work from Thursday, January 20, 2022 until government heeds to their request for better conditions of service.
According to the Association, over a year after their proposed salary structure was sent to the Finance Ministry to deal with it, they are yet to communicate anything to them despite persistent reminders.
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.”
“In similar vein, by this letter, all Chief Directors, Heads of Departments, Regional Coordinating Directors, Metropolitan, Municipal and District Coordinating Directors are duly informed,” he added.
