Three Teacher Unions in Ghana Declare Nationwide Strike

Three teacher unions in Ghana, namely the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT), have declared a nationwide strike effective Wednesday, March 20, 2024. This decision comes as a result of what the unions describe as the government’s failure to address their conditions of service.

The unions have raised several grievances, including the ongoing withholding of teachers’ salaries, unilateral changes to timetables without consulting the unions, and delays in the distribution of laptops to teachers.

Isaac Owusu, the National President of GNAT, emphasized that all teachers should comply with the directive to strike. He highlighted concerns about the distribution of laptops to teachers, changes to the school calendar without union consultation, and the blockage of teachers’ salaries by the Office of the Special Prosecutor without following the proper procedures.

In light of these issues and the perceived delays and unfulfilled promises by the employer and the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission, the teacher unions have decided to embark on a nationwide industrial action to demand their rights.
