Court orders striking teachers to resume work

The National Labour Commission (NLC) has secured an injunction to compel the striking teacher unions to immediately resume work.

The court order also barred the teachers from continuing with the strike which has been in effect since Monday.

Meanwhile, the teachers say forcing them to the classroom in spite of their concerns will be inimical to the state.

Background

Three Teacher Unions in the country have declared strike over unpaid allowances which dates back as far as 2016.

The unions are the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT).

Speaking to the media, President of the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), Philippa Larsen said teachers have been patient enough.

“We are not prepared to see our teachers suffer as a result of somebody’s negligence. Our pleas have fallen on deaf ears and the status quo remains. We cannot continue to tolerate this. Indeed, for how long shall they ignore our members. The teachers – the purveyors of education, don’t expect us to continue to look on. We can’t stand this.

“In light of this development, the Ghana National Association of Teachers, National Association of Graduate Teachers, Coalition of Concerned Teachers Ghana, do hereby today [Thursday] declare a strike by our members effective Monday 9th December 2019.”
