The Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) has directed its members in all forty-six (46) public Colleges of education to go back to the classroom today, January 25, 2022.
The directive followed a validation of the January 2022 salaries, implementation and payment of 2017-2020 Conditions of Service.
“Teaching is restored in all 46 public Colleges of Education effective Tuesday, 25th January 2022, as validation of January 2022 salaries has confirmed the implementation”, the group said in a statement.
Despite this, the CETAG says it is not pleased with the disparate payment of arrears of the 2017-2020 Conditions of Service.
“There has been widely observed disproportionate anomalies in the payment of arrears as seen in the validation process across all 46 public colleges of education. Unequivocally, CETAG would like to express its utmost displeasure and grave concern about the manner in which the payment of 2017-2020 CoS arrears has been implemented”, it said.
CETAG called on stakeholders to take steps to remedy situations and initiate full payment in February 2022 by the Controller and Accountant General’s Department.
Additionally, it instructed the Fair Wages and Salary Commission to engage CETAG on 2021 COS before the end of February 2022.
CETAG began an indefinite strike on January 6, 2022, after the government failed to implement its part of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed on September 24, 2021, after reaching agreements on 2017-2020 Conditions of Service (CoS) for members of the Association.
