The association believes that the current Sub- Committee constituted to deal with the issue are incompetent and failed to invite CLOSAG members for their input.

At a news conference in Accra, Mr Isaac Bampoe Addo, Executive Secretary of CLOSAG said the association sighted a presentation of a draft report of a Sub-Committee of the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) on the transition.

He said the presentation was made in Accra on May 26, to the National Committee on the implementation of decisions in the Takoradi Forum Communiqué, constituted by Mr Haruna Iddrisu, Minister of Employment and Labour Relations.

CLOSAG noted that the statement were provoking and improper, explaining that the Sub- committee on the transition made a comment that “in determining the skills that qualify for market premium, the sub- committee focused on the health and education sectors as these formed the priority areas of government”.

CLOSAG said with the current expertise at the FWSC, the output of the Committee would be misleading, mischievous and unprofessional.

The association said an interim market premium should also be extended to CLOSAG members and the effective date should coincide with the implementation date of the Single Spine Salary Structure that was January 1, 2010.

Mr Addo said if by July 19, CLOSAG has not been informed about the implementation of interim market premium for its members, the National Executive Council would mandate the National Secretariat to declare a nationwide strike.
