The  National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) has called off its strike following the directive from President Akufo-Addo to the Ministry of Finance to suspend the use of the Human Resource Information Management System Platform (HRIMSP), to pay salaries of teachers.

Speaking to host George Asekere on news and current affairs programme, ‘Behind The News”, General Secretary of NAGRAT, Frank Dadzie said the President’s decision is significant adding that the suspension of the HRIMSP will meet about 80% of their demands.

Communications Director of the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, Adokwei Awule said members are confident in the commitment government is making to resolve the setback of the service condition they brought to the fore.

Meanwhile a Labour Relations Expert, Austin Gamey says the Human Resource Information Management System that runs in the public sector is not strong enough to manage challenges confronting the institutions.

He said Human Resource persons should be trained practically to manage people. Mr. Gamey said the National Labour Commission is mandated to solve matters of labour conflict therefore institutions should listen to them.

He stressed that it is important that teachers are migrated onto the digital platform.

Mr. Gamey however cautioned the National Labour Commission not to be too eager to make pronouncements on whether a strike is legal or not.
