CETAG Initiates Indefinite Strike Over Government’s Failure to Implement Agreements

The Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) has announced an indefinite strike starting Friday, June 14, 2024, due to the government’s delay in implementing the National Labour Commission’s (NLC) Arbitral Award Orders and agreed service conditions.

This strike impacts all 46 public colleges of education across Ghana. CETAG’s demands include the payment of one month’s salary for additional duties performed in 2022 and the application of agreed allowance rates payable to public universities to eligible CETAG members.

In a statement issued on Friday, June 14, 2024, CETAG emphasized that the strike is to uphold the economic rights of its members under 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 instructed its members to cease teaching and related services indefinitely until their concerns are addressed.

“CETAG calls on all members to immediately comply with this directive by halting teaching and related services indefinitely across all 46 public colleges of education until all the orders from the Compulsory Arbitration Awards and related issues are fully implemented through payments to our members and subsequent actions. Thank you.”
