Teacher unions call off nationwide strike

Three major pre-tertiary teacher unions have officially called off their strike, initiated nationwide on March 20, 2024.

The unions, including the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT), ceased their industrial action citing the government’s lack of response to their service conditions.

This decision to end the strike came after the National Labour Commission (NLC) secured an interim injunction to stop the strike, paving the way for negotiations to begin.

Speaking to the media in Accra on Tuesday, President of the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, King Ali Awudu, emphasised the urgent need for negotiations to address their grievances.

He stated, “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.”

Awudu further urged the government, led by the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations, to start negotiations promptly, aiming for a swift resolution to prevent future disruptions.
