Civil Servants Declare Nationwide Strike In Ghana Over Salary

 

Civil servants in Ghana represented by the Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG) have declared a nationwide strike.

The protest is to take effect on Wednesday, July 3, 2024, according to CLOGSAG.

According to CLOGSAG, the Government of Ghana has failed to implement the proposed new salary structure approved by the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission of Ghana after one and a half years since a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was reached.

Addressing journalists in Accra, the Executive Secretary of CLOGSAG, Isaac Bampoe Addo, urged all of CLOGSAG’s members to abide by the strike directive until the government meets their demands.

He said: “Indicating our intentions to proceed on a nationwide strike if the new salary structure for the staff of the civil service and local government service is not implemented, we hereby declare a nationwide strike with effect from Wednesday, July 3, 2024.”

He added that “All staff of the civil service and local government service are to stay away from work until further notice. Similarly, all CLOGSAG secretarial offices must be closed. Kindly take note and comply accordingly.”
