CETAG Declares Indefinite Strike

Members of the Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) have laid down their tools over their conditions of service.

The National Executive Committee (NEC) with the consent and agreement of the National Council and the entire members of the Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) declared the indefinite strike on June 14, 2024.

According to the Committee, the strike is aimed at compelling the government to act desirably after all other efforts failed.

“Since November 2023, CETAG has written three (3) letters to the Commission requesting for enforcement of the Commission’s orders. This yielded no response from the Commission.

“CETAG wishes to call on every member to immediately comply with this declaration by withdrawing teaching and related services indefinitely across all 46 Public colleges of education until all the orders arising from the Compulsory Arbitration Awards and related concerns are fully implemented by way of payments to our members and implementations thereof.”

The Association cited failure of the government to comply with the National Labour Commission (NLC) decisions and orders given by the Compulsory Arbitration Awards agreed by the parties.

They include an order for the payment of one-month salary to each entitled member of CETAG as compensation for additional duty performed in 2022; an order that the agreed rates of allowances payable to public universities be applied to deserving members of CETAG; and an order that the implementation of the completed Staff Audit exercise shall commence from 1st January 2023.
