CLOSAG unhappy with Single Spine Salary implementation

Members of the Western Regional Branch of the Civil and Local Government Staff Association (CLOSAG) on Thursday began wearing red bands to show their displeasure over distortions in their salaries.

The distortions were detected as the members were being migrated onto the Single Spine Salary Structure (SSSS).

Addressing a press conference in Sekondi, Regional Chairman of CLOSAG, Mr Daniel Quayson, said the members were disillusioned because the migration had not brought much improvement in their salaries.

“We are as a matter of urgency, are calling on the Fair Wages and Salary Commission (FSWC) to complete an analysis for onward transmission to Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning, for top-up allowance to mitigate the negative change and insignificant increase in salaries to our members due to the migration,” he stated.

“We resolve once again calling on our members to start wearing red bands to press home our demand for immediate implementation of the top-up allowances.”

Mr Quayson noted that the migration had not brought much variation in their salary levels while some members did not receive the salary arrears paid to civil servants last month.

He said the Controller and Accountant General’s Department, Internal Audit Agency staff of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies as well as the Ministries, Departments and Agencies, Lands Commission and Survey Department staff were not migrated onto the pay Structure.

The Regional Executives of CLOSAG charged the national leadership to be steadfast and resolute and not allow themselves to be intimidated and frustrated by the FWSC.
