Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana, CETAG, has called off its one-month-old strike following intervention by the National Labour Commission (NLC).
The resumption of work is to pave the way “for the commencement of negotiations as directed by the NLC.” In a statement, the Association said the strike was over government’s failure to pay the members their Interim Market Premiums and Book and Research allowances.
The strike affected all 46 Colleges of Education, which were shut down indefinitely. Previous negotiations between the Association and other stakeholders including the Ministry of Education, Fair Wages and Salaries Commission and the National Council on Tertiary Education (NCTE) yielded no positive results.
The NCTE argued that the Association did not have the right to declare a strike when negotiations were ongoing. It was also accused of being unreasonable and failing to present itself for negotiations on the matter, drawing out the impasse.
