CLOGSAG members bare teeth at Executives, warn them not to back down on their demands

CLOGSAG members threaten to remove Executives, if they agree to renegotiate MoU signed in 2022

Members of the Civil and Local Government Staff Association, Ghana (CLOGSAG), have issued a resolute open letter to its Executives, expressing staunch opposition to any renegotiation with the government regarding the implementation of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed in January 2022.

The MoU, aimed at addressing Conditions of Service and an Enhanced Salary Structure (ESS), was scheduled to be effective from January 1, 2023. However, more than a year and a half later, CLOGSAG members lament that none of the agreed-upon terms have been realized.

In response to what they perceive as the government’s failure to honour its commitments and a deterioration of trust in the negotiation process, CLOGSAG members have initiated an indefinite strike until their demands are met.

“We are sending a clear and unequivocal warning to the CLOGSAG Executives: We will not accept any form of renegotiation with the government,” the letter which was leaked from the Association’s WhatsApp platform stated.

It demands the immediate implementation of the MoU and the full payment of arrears related to the ESS from January 2023 onward. The members warn that any move by CLOGSAG executives to concede under government pressure or engage in further negotiations will be met with steadfast resistance.

Highlighting the gravity of their position, the letter stresses that failure to achieve full implementation will result in severe consequences, including the removal of any executive members perceived as compromising on their demands.

“We trust that you will convey the seriousness of our stance to the government and take all necessary actions to ensure that our conditions are met without further delay,” the letter concluded.

The future of CLOGSAG now rests on the unwavering determination of its leadership during this critical juncture, as members await a decisive response from authorities.
