The unions are the Ghana National Association of Teachers, National Association of Graduate Teachers, Coalition of Concerned Teachers Ghana and the Teachers and Educational Workers Union. The unions declared the strike Monday morning (July 4, 2022) at a press conference in Accra, due to an unpaid allowances and poor services giving to them by the government.
In a statement issued by its Head of Public Relations, Cassandra Twum Ampofo, the GES said it read about the teachers’ strike action in the media, making them unaware before taking that decision themselves. It is quite sad to see students roaming about without having any formal teaching and engaging in education as the schools has been closed down.
“Regional and District Directors have further been directed to ensure that Basic School Heads keep schools opened and closely supervise all children who report to school pending further directives from Management of GES.” The GES has summoned the teacher unions to resume studies and teaching as soon as possible and have also ensured parents to be calm about this situation.
