JUST IN: Teacher Unions Suspend Oct. 1 Teachers Strike After NLC Engagement. Check out details

The three Teacher Unions have Suspended their October 1 teachers strike after  National Labour Commission (NLC) engagement. 

At an August 10, 2021 press conference, the  Ghana National Association of Teachers  (GNAT) together with the National Association of Graduate Teachers  (NAGRAT) and Coalition of Concern Teachers , Ghana (CCT-Ghana) served notice to strike on Friday, October 1st as a result of non-payment of transfer grants, increase in contact hours of teachers and non-payment of the Covid funds promised them at the height of the viral disease last year.

But before they activate their intention, the NLC invited the leadership of the three teacher unions to get to the negotiation table.

In an interview with Media General‘s Daniel Opoku on the eve of the intended strike, GNAT’s General Secretary Thomas Musah Tanko said they have since appeared before the Commission on two occasions with the latest on Thursday, September 23.

We are positive and we are encouraged because the last thing to happen is to begin to throw our hands in despair. We are ready and engaging in good faith and we believe that all of us will do same,” he added.

The NLC has directed the unions and the Ministry of Education to resolve all outstanding issues by mid-November.
