CLOGSAG calls off strike


The Civil and Local Government Service Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG) has called of its strike.

The decision comes after the leadership of the striking workers and government reached a consensus over their grievances Thursday.

CLOGSAG has been on strike over the past three weeks over the refusal of government to pay them their 15% interim market premium.

Earlier meetings between the labour minister and the workers failed to achieve the needed results.

But understands a meeting which ended a while ago had both government representatives and the leadership of the union coming out with smiles.

It is unclear the terms and content of the agreement reached between the parties.
