The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) has given the government till the end of June to provide the 20% COLA or face the wrath of over 240,000 teachers throughout the country.
According to GNAT, the present delay is continuing to have an impact on workers’ meager pay.
According to GNAT’s General Secretary, Thomas Musah Tanko, this has impacted fundamental essentials of existence.
In an exclusive interview with Daniel Opoku, TV3’s Labour Correspondent in Accra, he claimed there is an uncomfortable quiet among GNAT members regarding the development.
“Things have become quite difficult. I’ve talked about it and felt obligated to do so since our members have been phoning at all hours of the day and night, there is an unsettling calm among the whole membership, and something needs to be done as quickly as possible.
“As I previously stated, we are discussing the fundamental essentials of existence, such as water, food, housing, clothes, and the capacity to pay your daily costs, all of which will enable you to survive as a human being.”
