National Labour Commission directs teachers to call off strike
News Date: 22nd March 2013


The National Labour Commission has directed the Ministry of Finance, Fair Wages and Salaries Commission and Ghana Education Service to negotiate with the various teacher unions on all labour issues identified with a week.

These include non-payment of car maintenance allowance to qualified teachers in 2012, non-negotiation and payment of incremental credit to teachers who were migrated unto the Single Spin Salary Structure in 2010.

The rest are non-payment of correct salaries and arrears of teachers who were promoted since 2010 and non-negotiation of Collective Agreement between Ghana Education Service and the teacher unions.

Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyeman, Minister of Education, who made this known at a news conference in Accra on Thursday, said the directive asked Ghana National Association of Teachers and National Association of Graduate Teachers to ensure that all their members who are on strike call off the action.

She said with regards to promotion, the Ministry has decentralised the interview for promotion at the district and regional levels.

She said the decentralisation process would help to communicate most of the directives from the Ministry effectively to teachers to improve on quality of education.

She said a roadmap should be agreed upon by all parties for payments which could not be honoured immediately.

Prof Opoku-Agyeman has appealed to the leadership of the teacher unions to ask their members to go back to the classroom for the sake of students who are about to write their final exams.

She said in future there would be a forum of all unions in the education sector to dialogue on how to facilitate excellence.

"The labour relations between the Unions and the Ministry need to be strengthened," she added.
