We will take this opportunity to clear the public misconception that CLOSSAG members have receive 15% salary increment. It is never the case, this is a premium for their members and it is ment for workers with special skills and are of high demand where staff of Local government Service enjoy anytime there is salary increment.
So in this case CLOSSAG members are geting 15% of the 4% salary increment and not 15% of the monthly salary. What it means is that
if your monthly salary is Ghc2000.00, the 4% salary increment is ghc80.00 that will be added to your monthly salary. Now if you are local government staff Government will give you 15% premium of the ghc80.00 which is just ghc12.00 now adding the 12.00 + 80.00=ghc92.00. so your 15% premium is just ghc12.00 if your monthly salary is ghc2000.00.
So you can only enjoy such premium only when workers in general are given reasonable percentage of salary increment.
