CLOGSAG announces nationwide strike on July 3 over salary structure delay

The Civil and Local Government Staff Association, Ghana (CLOGSAG) has declared its intention to embark on a nationwide strike starting Wednesday, July 3, 2024.

This decision comes in response to the government’s failure to implement a proposed new salary structure that was agreed upon over a year and a half ago.

In a formal notice to its members, CLOGSAG expressed frustration over the delay in executing the new salary structure, which had been approved by the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC), Ministry of Finance, and Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations.

The association emphasized that despite the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) outlining these changes, no action has been taken to date.

CLOGSAG stated that it has exercised patience for an extended period and now feels compelled to take decisive action if the government does not fulfill its commitment by the end of June.

“The Civil and Local Government Staff Association, Ghana (CLOGSAG) is serving notice that its members would proceed on a nationwide strike from Wednesday, 3 July, 2024 if the new salary structure is not implemented,” the June 21 statement read.

This impending strike is not the first time CLOGSAG has resorted to industrial action to demand better conditions of service. On several occasions, the association has withdrawn its services, each time receiving assurances from the government that their concerns would be addressed. However, the persistent delays have led to mounting dissatisfaction among the members.

CLOGSAG’s upcoming strike signals a significant escalation in their efforts to secure improved compensation and underscores the urgency of resolving the long-standing salary structure issue.

As the deadline approaches, the association and its members await a response from the government, hoping for a resolution that will prevent further disruptions.
