The Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG) has admonished the public to be sympathetic to their demand for neutrality allowance.
Head of Civil Service Nana Kwesi Agyekum Dwamena speaking at a thanksgiving service to climax this year’s May Day celebration said the public has misunderstood their demands.
“So I will encourage the people of Ghana to re-look at it and be a bit more sympathetic and understanding of the difficulties and challenges that the Civil and Local Government Staff are going through. We are one of the organizations that hardly take industrial action. We are one the organization that are more flexible in terms of understanding of issues because we are at the center of government,” Head of Civil Service Nana Kwesi Agyekum Dwamena disclosed in his message.
He noted that “Series of allowances numbering about 48 and it came down to eight and finally we harmonized all others. So the neutrality basic allowance is a representation that embodied with a lot of allowances. I know that it’s a major concern a lot of people have come out to say that’s not what we are supposed to do.
“You are entitled to your own opinion that is a fact but the point still remain that nobody has really contested the fact that civil and local government service have gone through the negotiation and process.”
