We Want Our January Salary Paid In Full- Newly Recruited Teachers To GES.

The attention of the general public has been drawn to the disappointing news from concerned newly recruited teachers that the Ghana Education Service GES together with the Controller and Accountants General Department CAGD has taken half of the January salary of the newly teachers.

After a long waiting employment, the newly trained teachers from colleges of educations across Ghana finally got recruited and received their appointment letters on the November 30, 2020 which was 8 days to election.

However, on the appointment letters, they were to consult the regional director in writing of the their acceptance of the offer latest December 21, 2020 which they quickly compiled those documents in order to avoid withdrawal of their appointment.

Again, on the appointment letters, they were required to report to their place of postings (assumption of duty), get assumption of duty latest from their heads and submit with other documents to the education directorate.Many teachers did in the first week of January thus early as 4th January 2021.

Upon observation, they noticed and obeyed the portion of the letter that says their payment start from the date of assumption of duty.

During the CODVID 19 era, schools were locked down which lasted from March 2020 to January 18th 2021. In as much as they wanted to be in the classroom serving their nation, they have to wait until students return. Same applied to teachers who were already in the service.

Now the questions the newly teachers are asking is;

1. why did the Ghana Education Service GES forced teachers to change their assumption of duty date to January 8th?

2. why should the Ghana Education Service GES pay the in-service teachers during the period of lockdown and deny the newly recruited teachers?

The government, the Ghana Education Service and the Controller and Accountants General Department should as a matter of urgency resides on its decision to half January salary of the newly recruited teachers.
