The Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG) has called off its strike and directed its members to report to work on Monday, May 16, 2022.
This was after the National Executive Council (NEC) of the association held a meeting today, Thursday, May 12, 2022.
“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 11th May 2022”, it explained.
“We take this opportunity to appreciate the resilience and the commitment of all our members during this period. It portrays the sordid conditions under which our members have endured all these years. This brings home the fact that the conditions of service being enjoyed now have not been achieved on a silver platter”, it added.
The CLOGSAG has been on strike since April 21, 2022, over the non-payment of their “Neutrality Allowance”- an allowance for remaining politically neutral- and refused to call it off till it was addressed.
