CLOGSAG declares nationwide strike over salary structure implementation

The Civil and Local Government Service Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG) has announced a nationwide strike commencing on Wednesday, July 3, 2024.


This action is in response to the government's failure to implement a new salary structure for its members.


A notice issued on July 2, 2024, and signed by Isaac Bampoe Addo, the Executive Secretary of CLOGSAG, instructs all members to refrain from reporting to work until further notice.


The statement highlights the association's frustration with the government's delay in addressing their demands for fair remuneration.


The strike is expected to impact various civil and local government services across the country.


CLOGSAG represents a significant portion of the public sector workforce, and their absence is likely to cause disruptions in essential services.


In the notice, Mr. Addo expressed disappointment over the government's inaction despite multiple engagements and assurances.


He emphasized that the new salary structure was agreed upon to ensure equitable compensation for the efforts and contributions of civil and local government staff.

The association has called on its members to remain resolute and united in their demand for justice and fair treatment.


They are urging the government to expedite the implementation process to prevent further escalation of the situation.


This strike comes at a critical time, with many public services already under strain.


The government is yet to respond to CLOGSAG's announcement, and it remains to be seen how quickly a resolution can be reached.


Stakeholders and the general public are being advised to anticipate disruptions and seek alternative means for accessing services usually provided by CLOGSAG members.


The association has indicated that they will only resume work when the new salary structure is fully implemented and their demands are met.


The ongoing strike underscores the persistent challenges in labor relations within Ghana's public sector, highlighting the need for timely and effective communication and negotiation between the government and worker unions.


As this situation unfolds, all eyes will be on the government's next steps to address the grievances of CLOGSAG and restore normalcy to the civil and local government services across the nation.
