Members of the civil and local government staff association of Ghana (CLOSSAG) has begun a nationwide strike action over unpaid allowances.
The strike action which involves over fifty thousand members of the association is feared to have disrupted working activities at various ministries and local assemblies. Leaders of CLOGSAG say their members are not being fairly treated in the payment of interim premium to public sector workers.
“We are staying at home and not coming to work. Under the single spine pay policy, there should be fairness and equity so for fairness and equity, we think we should also enjoy interim allowances our colleagues are enjoying. We have had some talks with government and we have not gotten what we want and until we get what we want, We will continue to stay at home,” executive secretary of CLOSAG Isaac Bampoe Addo revealed.]
Meanwhile, the ministry of labour is yet to comment on the development as negotiations are yet to begin.
