Teachers Educational Workers’ Union Have Asked Members To Withdraw Their Services From Monday July 4

Teachers & Educational Workers’ Union (TEWU) have asked their members to withdraw their services beginning today, Monday July 4.

Teachers do not only guide students in academics or extracurricular activities, but teachers are also responsible for shaping a child's future, making him or her a better human being. A teacher imparts knowledge, good values, tradition, modern-day challenges and ways to resolve them within students.

The National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), the Teachers & Educational Workers' Union (TEWU), the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT), and the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) have all issued requests to their members requesting that they cease employment as of today, Monday, July 4.

On Monday in Accra, Thomas Musah Tanko, the general secretary of GNAT, revealed this choice. More than 240,000 teachers across the country had earlier given the government till the end of June of this year to provide the 20% Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) or face their wrath. The current delay is still having an impact on the workers' meager salaries, claims GNAT.


What impact do you think this will have on the students? Is the strike worth it?
