The National Council of the Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG), has suspended its strike declared over the non-implementation of the 2017-2020 conditions of service.
In a statement, the Council said validation of January 2022 salaries has, consequently, confirmed the implementation of the conditions. This means teaching activities will continue in all the 46 Public Colleges of Education from tomorrow, January 25, 2022.
The end of the strike, notwithstanding, the Council said it has noted some “disproportionate anomalies” in the payment of arrears.
Leadership of CETAG through the statement has expressed utmost displeasure and grave concern about the manner in which the payment of the 2017-2020 Condition of Service arrears has been effected.
CETAG said it expects stakeholders to take the needed steps to remedy the situation by paying in full all unpaid arrears in February 2022 by the Controller and Accountant General’s Department.
It also expects the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission to initiate the processes to re-engage the leadership of the Council to conclude the negotiations of the 2021 Condition of Service before the end of February, 2022.
