We’II not call off the strike until we see a document showing the payment schedule for neutrality allowance-CLOSAG
The Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana says it will not call off its strike until finance releases a document indicating payment schedules for them.
At a news conference in Accra, the association said all those who are disturbed about the payment of the neutrality allowance should mind their business.
The government has agreed to pay the ‘Neutrality Allowance’ to members of the Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG).
However, the allowance will be paid during the last quarter of 2022.
Head of Local Government Services, Dr Nana Ato Arthur told the media that both government and CLOGSAG have shown good faith as far as the matter is concerned.
“Both parties, government and CLOGSAG have shown very good faith as far as this is concerned. Government was very transparent; that is the level of transparency from the government side was high in the sense that government was plain to CLOGSAG that we sign an Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with you that we were going to provide some allowance for the civil servants and local government staff beginning February .”
Several Ghanaians have spoken against the allowance with some demanding for it to be scrapped.
CLOSAG maintains they will not call off the strike until they have seen a guideline for the payment.
Vice President of CLOSAG Dr.Isaac Bampoe who addressed the press said it is a fact that the government agreed to pay the allowance.
