Workers union condemns CLOGSAG for forcing employees to join strike
The union, therefore, called on the authorities concerned to sanction the CLOGSAG executive who locked the offices.
‘This is because local government workers do not take instructions from CLOGSAG,’ the General Secretary of the LGWU, Mr Joe Boahen, said in a statement.
Caution to workers
The LGWU last Friday issued a press statement cautioning workers of the MMDAs and departments not to join the CLOGSAG strike, which started last Monday.
‘But it is regrettable that CLOGSAG executives have gone ahead to lock up some of the offices of the MMDAs and departments to force the staff to participate in a needless and uncalled for strike,’ the statement said.
In view of that, it said the LGWU was still appealing to the staff of MMDAs and departments to exercise utmost restraint and continue to go about their normal work.
‘The union is working closely with the authorities concerned to address the migration, market premium and other related issues associated with the Single Spine Pay Policy (SSPP).
‘The leadership of the LGWU will continue to choose the path of dialogue and labour discourse devoid of rancour and divisiveness,’ the statement said.
Occupational pension scheme
In another development, the LGWU wishes to inform all employees that the Local Government Service Secretariat and the union have established the occupational pension scheme in compliance with the National Pension Act, Act 766.
A formal notice of the second tier occupational pension scheme for employees of the Local Government Service and MMDAs had been communicated to all regional coordinating councils.
‘The LGWU, therefore, has been given the mandate to organise the staff to benefit from the provisions of the second tier occupational pension scheme for local government employees,’ it said.
