URGENT: National Labour Commission sends strong message to all teachers over indefinite strike
IN THE MATTER OF DECLARATION OF STRIKE BY THE LEADERSHIP OF TEACHER UNIONS- GNAT, NAGRAT, TEWU AND CCT-GH
The Teacher Unions mentioned above have in a joint press conference held today, Monday, 4th July 2022, announced the declaration of strike with immediate effect (copy attached for ease of reference).
The declaration of the strike according to the statement is due to what they describe as government’s failure to grant them a 20% Cost-of-Living-Allowance in the face of the current high level of inflation, increases in prices of goods and services, etc.
You are hereby requested to engage the aggrieved Teacher Unions immediately upon receipt of this correspondence to negotiate settlement of their grievance(s) within seven (7) days and furnish the Commission with a Report upon completion.
With this intervention, we urge the Teacher Unions to rescind the decision and discontinue the strike action io pave way for the process of engagement to ensue.
