Colleges of Education Closed as CETAG Defies Order to End Strike

Academic activities across colleges of education have come to a standstill as the Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) continues its strike, defying directives from the Fair Wages and Salary Commission (FWSC) to return to work.

The ongoing strike has led to a complete cessation of both academic and administrative functions, casting uncertainty over the academic calendar.

On Friday, June 14, 2024, CETAG declared an indefinite strike in response to the government’s delay in implementing the National Labour Commission’s (NLC) Arbitral Award Orders and negotiated service conditions. In response, the FWSC demanded that CETAG end its industrial action immediately.

The commission criticized CETAG’s decision to strike at this critical time as an act of bad faith, given the government’s efforts to address their concerns.

However, CETAG announced it would not comply with the FWSC’s directive to terminate the strike and challenged the commission to initiate legal action if it sought to enforce government compliance.

Some students, speaking to Citi News, urged the lecturers to return to the classroom, highlighting the negative impact the strike is having on their education.
