Three teacher Unions call off strike

By Seli Baisie

Teacher unions have called off their nationwide strike, initiated on March 20 due to grievances over their conditions of service.

The decision comes after the National Labour Commission (NLC) obtained an interim injunction to facilitate negotiations.

The unions cited the Ministry of Education and Ghana Education Service’s failure to address concerns, including the absence of a Scheme of Service and Collective Agreement, as reasons for the strike.

Speaking to the media in Accra on Tuesday, April 2, the President of the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, Ghana, King Ali Awudu, emphasized the need for swift resolution of their concerns, urging negotiations to commence immediately.

“As law-abiding citizens and having respect for the court, we hereby declare the strike that was called on 20th March 2024 off. We ask all our members and teachers of pre-tertiary education in this country to resume work with immediate effect.”

“We continue to ask the employer led by the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations to commence negotiations this afternoon, today April 2 2024. So we can expedite the negotiations and come to a conclusion to forestall any other happenings in the future,” he stated.
