Gov’t offices shutdown as CLOGSAG strike continues
Offices at the Volta Regional Coordinating Council remained closed on Wednesday, second day of a strike action declared by the Civil and Local Government Staff Association-Ghana (CLOGSAG).
The Regional Administration block and its adjoining offices were unusually quiet, with official vehicles parked in the yard with no driver was on hand.
There were notices of the industrial action pasted on doors of some of the offices demanding CLOGSAG members adhered to directives not to come to work.
The Ghana News Agency on rounds between 0830 and 0900 hours met persons at offices of the Municipal Department of Social Welfare who said they were students on attachment.
Three physically disabled women, who came from Hodzo, a nearby village to register with the Department of Social Welfare, expressed frustration for having travelled to Ho and not likely to get registered.
A middle-aged man who was also spotted at the frontage of the Coordinating Council office said he came to see the Regional Minister but found out that all the offices were closed.
CLOGSAG on Monday, October 14, 2013 started a nationwide industrial action over grievances relating to allowances under the Single Spine Salary Structure.
