Members of Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) and Coalition of Concerned Teachers have announced a strike action beginning Monday, 9th December 2019.
This decision came as a result of the government’s failure to pay them some arrears which have accrued since 2012. The General Secretary of GNAT who was speaking on Angel Fm stated that they have engaged government on many occasions but has proved futile. He said the government had ignored all their pleas.
They then gave the government an ultimatum which is today, th December 2019 to address the issie and pay the monies due them.
They have therefore decided to use this strike action to let the government know how serious they are. According to the General Secretary the strike will begin on Monday.
He advised all the members of these Associations to make sure they do not report to work on Monday until their demands are met.
“No teacher should go to school until the money hit the account”.
This strike action will affect both teachers basic schools and the secondary schools.
In a time where secondary schools are using the double track system, this will go a long way to affect the current group of students in the various institution.
