FWSC directs CETAG to call off strike with immediate effect



The Fair Wages and Salaries Commission has directed the executives and members of the Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) to call off its industrial strike with immediate effect.

The Commission described CETAG’s decision to strike at such a crucial moment as an act of bad faith, given the government’s efforts to address their concerns.

CETAG on Friday, June 14, 2024, declared an indefinite strike over what they termed as the government’s show of bad faith toward issues concerning their conditions of service, and the government’s delay in implementing the National Labour Commission’s (NLC) Arbitral Award Orders and negotiated service conditions.

But speaking in Accra on Friday, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the FWSC, Mr. Benjamin Arthur defended the government’s position. Saying“the Government has demonstrated goodwill towards your issues because we believe that it is mutually beneficial, and it will benefit this country that at least we do something for our colleagues who are teaching in the colleges of Education. The government means well.

So we are calling on them to go back to the classroom to go and teach. This strike is out of bad faith,” the CEO of FWSC said

Meanwhile, the President of the Conference of Principals of Colleges of Education, Professor Samuel Atintono, has expressed disappointment with the teachers’ decision to strike.

He also described the move by executives and members of CETAG as needless, as it disrupts the proper flow of academic activities for students.
