The Centre for Democratic Development Ghana, (CDD) has taken a swipe the Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG) for embarking on strike over the non-payment of neutrality allowance.
The civil society organization has asked CLOSAG to rather request for a level playing field regarding service conditions among public sector workers.
Director of Advocacy and Policy engagement at CDD Dr. Kojo Asante said “I really feel CLOGSAG should be pulling back from this course of action”.
“What they should all join hands in is this inequity excesses with conditions of service in the different public service that creates a certain unfairness. That may be affecting morale in the public sector. This is what is sustainable, the path they are going is not sustainable.”
He expressed shock at tgendevsion by the government to pay the allowance.
“I am shocked that government will agree to this in the first place. I describe it as a tautology. How are you rewarding someone for something they are supposed to do as part of their responsibilities? The allowance must be declared unconstitutional. It is illegal in the first place for rewarding someone for something they are obligated to do and are paid for. It is like an unjust reward.”
