The Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG) has called off its three-week old strike over what it termed “neutrality allowance”.
The executive secretary of CLOGSAG, Dr Isaac Bampoe-Addo made the announcement at a press conference on Thursday (12 May).
According to him, “the National Executive Council of the Civil and Local Government Staff Association, Ghana (CLOGSAG) has decided to call off the nationwide strike by its members.”
“The rationale to step down the industrial action was based on the fact that demand for the ministry of finance to direct the controller and accountant general to effect payment of the agreed allowance has been met on Wednesday (11 May). With this decision, the strike has been called off. All CLOGSAG members should report back to work by Monday 16th May 2022,” he said.
The Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG) has been on strike since 21 April to demand what they describe as the non-payment of “neutrality allowance” as agreed with the government.
