CLOGSAG Rallies Members For Strike
THE LEADERSHIP of the Civil and Local Government Staff Association Ghana (CLOGSAG) has stated that its members would embark on another nationwide strike beginning Monday, October 14, 2013 if the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) fails to address their complaints.
According to the group, all efforts to get the Commission to rectify some anomalies in the salaries of members of CLOGSAG proved futile.
The National Executive Secretary of CLOGSAG, Isaac B. Addo, gave the two-week ultimatum at a workers’ durbar held in Bolgatanga in the Upper East region.
Some national and regional executive council members were in attendance.
According to the Executive Secretary, since members of the Association were migrated to the Single Spine Salary Structure (SSSS) in October 2011, they have encountered anomalies in their salaries, including reduction and insignificant increment, unlike other groups that were also migrated onto the SSSS.
The Upper East Regional Chairman of CLOGSAG, Paul Agoo, said this time round there would be no turning back, since the Commission has continuously refused to address their grievances.
He said various Committees that were formed to intervene in the matter asked the Commission to address their grievances.
‘When the strike starts we will not listen to any plea until all grievances are addressed and leadership will crack the whip on any member who succumbs to public pressure to flout the National Executives directive,’ Paul Agoo said.
The Regional Chairman of CLOGSAG also cautioned members of the Association against heeding the views of social commentators and the public.
