Teacher Unions Threatened Gov’t over Salary Arrears – “We Shall Use other Channels If……”

Teacher Unions under the Ghana Education Service including the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT) – GH have sent a signal to government concerning an agreement which both parties earlier agreed of which the Unions believed Government failed to honour its part of the agreement.

In a letter dated October 17, 2017, addressed to the Finance Minister, the teachers said: “We refer to our letter dated 21st June 2017, and subsequent meetings that followed on the subject matter above, and regret that the concerns raised have been left unaddressed to date.”

The Teacher Unions reminded government, of details of their agreement, stating that they agreed in principle to commence the validation exercise of teachers for payment of salary arrears on September 11, 2017, for which notices were sent to members across the country.

A resolution was said to have been reached of which  it was agreed that, 65, 013 forms were to be validated in 88 days.

“as we write and one month down the line, no action has been taken to commence the exercise and we see this as a deliberate ploy and betrayal of good faith in dealing with the matter.”

The teachers emphasized that in the circumstances in which they  found themselves, it would be extremely difficult for the leadership to restrain its  members from expressing their anger in forms that may affect the sanctity of the school environment.

The Unions urged government to address their concerns as a matter of urgency or they will be forced to use other channels to seek redress.
