The teacher unions strike as a result of government's inability to pay 20% conditions of service allowance *cola* has been called off after the government agreed to pay 15% to them.
It all began when the teacher unions in Ghana: Coalition of Concerned Teachers CCT, NAGRAT, GNAT and TEWU on the 4th of July 2022 declared a nationwide strike over Conditions Of Service Allowance which they have been demanding since November last year.
The Minister of Education, the Labor union and the leadership of the teachers have since then had series of meetings to resolve the issue but all failed.
The previous meetings was said to have failed due to the government's reluctance to present any offer in terms of percentage on the negotiation table excepted begging teachers to return to school. The government's economic hardship excuses and the pleas were not bought buy the leadership of teachers on the grounds that the government has not demonstrated enough to show it is going through hard times.
Eventually, the government has seen reason in the demand by the teachers and has agreed to pay a 15% conditions of service allowance to teachers effective 1st July, 2022.
