Effective today, Friday, June 14, 2024, the Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) has commenced an open-ended strike.

This action is in response to the government’s procrastination in executing the National Labour Commission’s (NLC) Arbitral Award Orders and the agreed-upon service conditions.

Impacting all 46 public colleges of education across Ghana, the strike seeks to compel the government to fulfill CETAG’s stipulations.

These include disbursing a month’s additional salary for duties undertaken in 2022 and implementing the allowance rates, akin to those provided to public university staff, for qualified CETAG members.

In a declaration made on the same day, CETAG emphasized that the strike aims to affirm its members’ economic rights as enshrined in Article 24(1) of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana and Sections 10 (a) and (b) of the Labour Act, 2003 (Act 651).

The Association has called upon its members to cease all teaching and associated activities indefinitely until a satisfactory resolution to their demands is achieved.

“CETAG wishes to call on every member to immediately comply with this declaration by withdrawing teaching and related services indefinitely across all 46 Public colleges of education until all the orders arising from the Compulsory Arbitration Awards and related concerns are fully implemented by way of payments to our members and implementations thereof. Thank you.”
