Regional News of Wednesday, 31 October 2012
The Nationwide strike action declared by the Civil and Local Government Staff Association (CLOGSAG) which was to start from today October 31, could not come off in all the Ministries, Departments and Agencies in the Ashanti Region.
This is because most regional and district offices did not receive their circulars to that effect.
Sources close to the Regional Co-ordinating Council told the Ghana News Agency in Kumasi that those who did not receive the directive went to work today.
“However some offices were closed today, an indication that they had been duly given the green light” the source added.
CLOGSAG yesterday directed its national, regional and district offices to close down starting from today to put pressure on Government and the Fair wages and Salaries Commission to address outstanding issues concerning the payment of premium to its members.
Mr. Isaac Bampoe-Addo, Executive Secretary of the Association at a media briefing in Accra on Tuesday said the executives have been compelled to reach the decision as a result of their members accusing them of being “in bed ” with government leading to its failure to pay the premium.
