CLOGSAG begins nationwide strike

Story: News Desk   

The  nationwide strike declared by the Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG) has taken effect, with members abandoning their offices in compliance with the declaration.

Most offices in the Ministries were closed on  Wednesday morning.

Only a few workers, including security persons, were seen in some of the offices.

One security officer said, “Yes, the whole place is locked up. No worker is coming here until they get a directive from CLOGSAG to return to work”.

A worker in one of the Ministries explained to the media,  that he was there because it was raining, saying, “once the rains stop, I will go home.”

Some of the places were the Ministry of Railways Development, Ministry of Fisheries and Aquaculture Development, Ministry of Trade and Industry, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources, Ministry of Sanitation and Water Resources, Ministry of Works and Housing, Statistical Service, and CLOGSAG Secretariat.

At the Ministry of Trade and Industry, the main entrance was locked with a padlock, with a red band hanging on the door.

Most of the buildings and trees in the Ministries also had red bands on them.

On Tuesday, July 2, 2024, CLOGSAG held a press conference in Accra, declaring a nationwide strike with effect from Wednesday, July 3, over the government’s failure to implement a new salary structure for the Association’s members.

According to CLOGSAG, the new salary structure, which was agreed upon with the Government, was due for implementation in January 2023 but had been delayed for one and a half years.

The Association, therefore, directed its members and secretariats across the country to stay away from work until further notice.
