Pre-Tertiary Teacher Unions End Two-Week Strike, Call for Urgent Negotiations

Pre-Tertiary Teacher Unions End Two-Week Strike Call for Urgent Negotiations

Three teacher unions at the pre-tertiary level have brought an end to their two-week-long strike, which began nationwide on March 20, 2024. They cited the government’s failure to address their service conditions as the reason for the strike.

The decision to halt the strike follows the National Labour Commission (NLC) obtaining an interim injunction to stop the industrial action, allowing negotiations to commence.

In a joint media statement released in Accra on Tuesday, the unions, which include the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT), announced the cessation of the strike.

King Ali Awudu, President of the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, Ghana, stressed the necessity for swift negotiations by their employers to resolve their concerns.

“As responsible citizens and in compliance with the court’s orders, we hereby end the strike initiated on March 20, 2024. We call on all our members and pre-tertiary educators in the nation to promptly resume work,” Awudu declared.

He also urged the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations to kick-start negotiations without delay.

“We implore the employer, under the guidance of the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations, to begin negotiations this afternoon, on April 2, 2024. This will expedite the negotiation process and prevent similar occurrences in the future,” he concluded.
