We rent accomodation and eat every day but have not received salary for 6 months now - Teacher group

The coalition of newly recruited teachers, a group in Ghana Education Service (GES) says they rent accomodation and eat everyday but have not received salaries for the past six months.

According to the leader of the group, Mr Augustine Appiah, who spoke to Citi News, life is becoming unbearable for them considering the economic hardship in which the country is presently facing, and the fact that they have not received any salary since their recruitment by the Ghana Education Service.

He said about 80% of its members have not been paid for the past six months because the Ghana Education Service has failed to provide them with staff Identification cards to undertake their biometric registration for the onward release of their salaries despite receiving clearance from the Finance Ministry last year.

To them, when they were not working, it was understandable to ask for money from their relatives, but now that they are working too, they have to still go and ask their relatives for money which is embarrassing.

Their convener says they have become a burden to their families because of the non-payment of their salaries.
