MoE: Engagements With Teacher Unions Ended Inconclusively

Deputy Public Relations Officer for the Ministry of Education, Mr. Ernest Akosa has stated that last week’s engagements with the four teacher unions namely Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), Coalition of Concerned Teachers, Ghana (CCT-G) and Teachers and Educational Workers Union (TEWU) ended inconclusively.

According to him, the meetings could not render solutions to the demands of the teacher unions, that is, seeking 20% COLA from the government, as well as ushering the teachers to return to the classroom.

Mr. Akosa stated that Ghana Education Service led by Prof. Opoku Amankwah met the leadership of the teacher union last Tuesday 5 July, 2022, but couldn’t solve the issue leading to the subsequent one on Thursday 7 July, 2022. Some prominent state officials at the meeting were the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta, National Security Minister, Hon. Kan Dapaah, Labour Minister, Education Minister, Dr. Osei Yaw Adutwum. He emphasized that, the meeting was not only about the teachers but all government workers to look at how government can cushion them in the midst of the economic adversities.

Despite these engagements with the teacher unions, the the strike persists.
