OUR SALARY ARREARS IS LONG OVERDUE – 2016 BATCH TELLS GOVERNMENT

IMG_20180705_100033

The 2016 Batch of trained teachers are still crying for what is rightfully belongs to them.

The teachers numbering over 22,000 have still not received their salary arrears. The government of Ghana is still owing them some number of months, ranging from 4 to 5 months . The leaders and members of the aggrieved 2016 Batch gave the government a 14 days ultimatum to respond to their issues. Below is their press release.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

JULY 2, 2018

FROM: 2016 BATCH VICTIMS OF SALARY ARREARS

TO: ALL MEDIA HOUSES

WHAT HAS CAUSED THE DELAY IN THE PAYMENT OF OUR SALARY ARREARS?

In spirit of goodwill, harmony and good governance, we the 2016 trained and posted teachers from the various Colleges of Education in Ghana, wish to bring to the attention of government and stakeholders, a development we deem distasteful and unwarranted.

To begin with, we thank government for putting in place practical steps in getting us posted after our training in the Colleges of Education.
However, we wish to unequivocally state that our postings have rather been a punishment than a call to professional duty. One will say why take such steps when our unions claimed to have been negotiating on our behalf for a payment plan? We can confidently state that these batch has not been captured in any of the payment plans nor included in any of the press releases by government which covered up to only August 2016 a month before our appointment. This we see as a great concern and worrying for that matter.

Moreover, in the continuous registration of our displeasure, we have always brought to light the ache and pain, the delay in the payment of our arrears has caused the teaching fraternity.

Therefore, we simply have these simple questions for the government to respond to, in fourteen calendar days or expect us on the street of the Jubilee House, Accra.

  1. What is holding the payment of the arrears of teachers?
  2. What have we done knowingly or unknowingly as teachers, to deserve this treatment?.

To conclude with, we would like to copiously reiterate that, after fourteen days of service of this petition, we expect to hear nothing but a swift response in writing to the questions stated above; marking a pact between government and we the concerned teachers.

We mean well and believe government does too…

Counting on your usual cooperation.

Thank you.
