The three teacher unions are expected to meet
today, Tuesday, March 1, to make known the
way forward regarding the strike threat issued
a fortnight ago.
The teachers had threatened to withdraw their
services from March 1 if government failed to
settle their allowances.
Leadership of the National Association of
Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), Ghana National
Association of Teachers (GNAT) and Coalition of
Concerned Teachers, Ghana (CCT-G) will decide
on whether to prosecute the threat or back
down on it at today’s meeting.
Government last week released GHC1.5 million
to settle part of the arrears after a meeting
with leadership of the teacher unions.
The teacher unions, however, expressed
dissatisfaction with the amount, saying it is
too little to settle the thousands of teachers
whose allowances have not been paid.
“Even as I speak to you now there are some
districts across the country whose applications
we have not received. We have tasked the
Ghana Education Service to task all directors
up field to make sure that all those documents
come in,” David Ofori Acheampong told TV3’s
Daniel Opoku.
Vice President of NAGRAT Angel Kabornu said
irrespective of the outcome of Tuesday’s
meeting: “We are interested in ensuring that
the work goes on and we interested in
ensuring that teachers who deserve to be paid
are paid.”
