CLOGSAG Agrees To Call Off Strike
The government has achieved an agreement with the Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG) to pay their neutrality payment, according to the National Labour Commission (NLC).
CLOGSAG has been on strike since April 21st, claiming that the government has failed to pay the neutrality allowance that was agreed upon.
“The government has agreed to pay [neutrality allowance], and then CLOGSAG has agreed to call off the strike,” NLC executive secretary Ofosu Asamoah said in an interview.
It is unclear when the allowance will be paid, according to Ofosu Asamoah.
“We were not provided the details of when the payment should commence because the ministry of finance is expected to write to the controller. I’m confident it’ll be out on Friday…”
“All we ask is that they respect the agreement and that each party does their share. We’ll find out when they’ll pay from the letters that will arrive at the controller by Friday (29 April),” he said.
