CETAG Calls Off “Disguised Strike”

The Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) has called off its mandatory leave.

On September 1, 2022, CETAG members went on leave, which some have described as a strike in disguise.

They took the action demanding among other things, “a compensation package for academic staff of Teacher Trainee Colleges who have been compelled to work all year round without taking a compulsory vacation or off-season break”.

It planned to resume on October 10 but in a press statement today, the Association said it has cut its ten-working day old leave.

“The Leadership of the Association has broadly consulted with our legal team, considered the formal appeal by the leadership of the Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG) and that of the general public, seen PRINCOF’s resolve to take steps to compensate tutors for engaging in the all-year-round academic work and the goodwill CETAG has enjoyed from the Ghana Tertiary Education Commission (GTEC).

“We have equally considered the need to salvage the academic calendar from imminent distortion. As a result, we hereby direct members to end our 10-working day old leave hitherto, on Friday, September 16, 2022, travel back to our respective campuses within the weekend and resume academic work on Monday, September 19, 2022,” JoyNews quotes portions of the statement.
