CLOGSAG Strike: LGWU Calls For Police Protection
The Local Government Workers’ Union (LGWU) has called for police protection for its members following the ongoing strike embarked on by members of the Civil and Local Government Staff Association, Ghana (CLOGSAG).
CLOGSAG two weeks ago began an indefinite strike over a delay in the payment of what its leadership describes as ‘Top-up’ under the Single Spine Salary Structure (SSSS).
Members of CLOGSAG had to call off a strike action late last year, after an intervention from the Civil Service Council.
The leadership claims the government, represented by the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC), has not shown commitment to resolving their concerns.
But the National Labour Commission (NLC) has postponed indefinitely, mediation efforts, after CLOGSAG failed to appear at a meeting early this month to find lasting solution to the impasse
The General Secretary of LGWU, Mr. Joe Boahen said: ‘Reports emanating from the regions suggest that the violent conduct of CLOGSAG executives is still ongoing. We therefore have no option but to appeal to the Police for protection for our members’.
Meanwhile, the leadership of LGWU has issued directives to all their Regional Officers to report any incidence in the regions to the National Secretariat for necessary action.
