Should GNAT, NAGRAT and CCT opt for Cost of Living Allowance?

Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) was introduced by the erstwhile Mahama administration from the later of 2013 to March 2015. The motive for COLA was to mitigate the high cost of living at that time.

Sources have it that the Teacher Unions are still in negotiations with the Ministry of Labour, Labour Commission and Fair Wages and Salaries Commission for an increment in teachers' salaries.

Should the Teacher Unions and the Government of Ghana opt for COLA instead of increment?

The 2021 budget was silent about salary adjustment, therefore it would be difficult for the Government of Ghana spend huge sums not captured in the budget statement.

It would be a good idea if the likes Ghana National Association Teachers (GNAT) and her sister unions call on Government to introduce an emergency plan to curb the unbearable hardship that is facing teachers in the country.

Should the leadership of GNAT, NAGRAT and CCT be able to convince Government on this financial emergency plan, it will restore some of confidence in their members as they (teachers) feel that their leaders are not fighting for their course.

The New Patriotic Party should sieze this opportunity and demonstrate to Ghanaians that, they (NPP) are a listening government.
