The striking teacher unions have called off their strike after the National Labour Commission (NLC) secured a restraining order from the court against their action on Friday November 11.
President of the Ghana National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) told TV3 Journalist on Friday November 11 that “we can’t disrespect the court order. To that end, we are telling all our members to resume work on Monday. Every teacher should go to work on Monday.”
The NLC dragged NAGRAT, the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT) to court for failing to heed its order to return to the classrooms while their discussions with the government on what caused their industrial action go on.
The Teacher Unions declared strike on 4th November 2022. According to them, they don't agree with appointment of new Director General, Dr Nkansah.
On Monday November 7 the leadership of the unions asked their members to continue staying at home because their meeting with the government ended inconclusively. For now the strike is being called off. The teachers unions are set to meet the NLC on 16ty November 2022.
