The Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOSAG) has called off its strike action.
This was announced by the National Executive Council (NDC) of CLOSAG.
According to CLOSAG, it called off the strike action based on the directive by the Finance Minister to the Controller and Accountant General to effect payment of the neutrality allowance.
Members have therefore been asked to report to work on May 16, 2022.
Isaac Bampoe-Addo, the Executive Secretary of CLOGSAG, at a press conference said the decision to step down from the industrial action followed a decision taken by its National Executive Council after an agreement was reached with the government over the payment of their demanded allowances.
“At its meeting held on Thursday 12th May 2022, the National Executive Council of the Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG) decided to call off the nationwide strike by its members. The rationale to step down the industrial action was based on the fact that the demand from the Ministry of Finance to direct the Controller and Accounts General to effect payment of the agreed allowance has been met on 11th May 2022.”
We take this opportunity to appreciate the resilience and the commitment of all our members during this period.
It portrays the sordid conditions under which our members have endured all these years. This brings home the fact that the conditions of service being enjoyed now have not been achieved on a silver platter.”
