Ashanti CLOGSAG threatens strike action

The Ashanti Regional branch of the Civil and Local Government Staff Association, Ghana (CLOGSAG) has threatened to embark on a strike action over the premium payment.

A press release signed by Ms Mercy B. Acheampong, the Regional Chairperson, in Kumasi, said if by Thursday, October 25, no firm decision was taken by the government, they would withdraw their services.

It said members of the Association were disappointed by the delay in the payment of the premium they were demanding.

The release said they had laid down their tools on September 5, but called it off, following the intervention of the National Executive on the basis of on-going discussions with the Ministers for Employment and Social Welfare and the Finance and Economic Planning.

The regional association said it had been reliably informed that an inter-ministerial committee set up to come out with the modalities submitted its report on October 3.

“However, it appears that no firm decision has been taken on the report as we have still not received a copy of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) indicating commitment to payment of the premium.”

The release warned that if the deadline is missed and nothing concrete is done it would convene an emergency regional council meeting to consider immediate strike action.
