The Civil and Local Government Staff Association, Ghana (CLOGSAG) has issued a notice to embark on a nationwide strike from 20 January 2022 over poor conditions of service.
According to CLOGSAG its unique conditions of service is borne out of the fact that Article 94(3)(b) of the 1992 constitution bars civil servants from participating in active political activities.
“It is important to note that the institutions whose members are restrained from participating on partisan politics have distinct and enhanced salary structures and other conditions of service. This our request is fair and genuine,” CLOGSAG said in a statement.
The association said it finds the undue delay in finalising negotiation on the conditions of service for CLOGSAG members worrying and unacceptable.
The association said its members can no longer hold on the pressure and has to declare strike, which according to them is overdue.
