Civil servants alert members of impending strike

The Volta Regional Secretariat of the Civil and Local Government Staff Association, Ghana, (CLOGSAG) has sent out alert notices to members across the region to withdraw their services from Monday October 14.

The alert was contained in a statement, dated September 26, and signed by Victor Xornam Kportoe, CLOGSAG Volta Regional Secretary and copied to all District Coordinating Directors, Heads of Departments and media organizations.

Reasons for the planned strike were given as “deliberate foot dragging in payment of top up/premium to staff of Civil and Local Government Services”.

Attached to the alert notice is a copy of a CLOGSAG Ghana 20th September 2013 statement stating that the Association had gone through all the processes to have concerns of its members addressed but failed to get a solution.

“Under the circumstances, the National Executive Council of CLOGSAG at its emergency meeting held in Cape Coast on Wednesday, 18th September, 2013 decided to notify the National Labour Commission and the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission of the intention of its members to embark on a nationwide strike in conformity with Section 159 of the Labour Act, 2003 (Act 651) with effect from 14th October, 2013”.

That statement was signed by Isaac Bampoe Addo Executive Secretary and posted to regional secretaries and chairmen and district secretaries and chairmen across the country.
