N/R CLOGSAG gives gov’t six-day ultimatum

The Northern region branch of the Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG), has given government a 6-day ultimatum to respond to the inter-ministerial committee report on the payment of Single Spine Salary Structure premium to its members.

Mr Ali Anafo, Northern Regional Secretary of the Association, addressing members at a conference in Tamale on Wednesday, said CLOGSAG members in the region would resume its strike action if by close of Monday October 29, government fail to respond to their demands.

“Members of the Northern region branch of CLOGSAG are requesting for an immediate response from government to the inter-ministerial committee report of premium to our constituents”, he said.

Mr Anafo said CLOGSAG was aware that the inter-ministerial committee had presented its report to government but nothing concrete had been said regarding the premium. He said: “As a result of the total silence of government on the issue tension and anxiety is mounting among our members. We have, therefore, resolved that by Monday, October 29, 2012 if no firm response is received from government, members of CLOGSAG in the Northern Region will visit our suspended strike action”.
