The Ghana National Association of Teachers, GNAT, is by far the largest teacher union in the country. It's activities, therefore affects the behavior of teachers in Ghana. Since it coordinates and manages the members, it also has the responsibility of seeking the welfare of the teachers under its management.
As part of its welfare policy for its members, it also provides supplementary pension scheme for the members known as the Teachers Fund where teachers make contributions for the future and have access to a comparatively low cost loans. Some few changes have been made to the Union's provident fund and messages have been sent out to the members to notify them of those changes. In the message which was sent on Saturday 5th June 2021 by the General Secretary of GNAT, Thomas Musah, the National Council of the union believes that, since the GNAT provident fund belongs to the union, the name should be reversed from Teachers Provident Fund to its original name GNAT Provident Fund, its current Board be replaced with an interim one, and any meeting not authorized by NCoG is illegal and does not have any effect. The full message sent out to members is below.
