National Labour Commission order teachers to call off strike

The National Labour Commission (NLC) has issued an order to three teacher unions, the Ghana National Association of Teachers, the National Association of Graduate Teachers, and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers Ghana, to end their planned industrial action.

The NLC’s Chairperson, Justice Kwabena Asuman-Adu, issued a statement that was copied to the Ghana News Agency and stated that the unions’ declaration did not comply with Section 159 of Act 651. Thus, the statement pleaded with the unions to reverse their decision.

On March 20, 2024, the three teacher unions said that they will go on a nationwide walkout over working conditions. They said that the Office of Special Prosecutor’s withholding of their wages, the government’s inability to provide laptop computers to every teacher, and the regular calendar modifications made without their prior consent were the driving forces for their action.

“In the light of the above circumstances and given the delays and unfulfilled promises we the Pre-tertiary Teacher Unions do hereby declare a nationwide strike effective today, Wednesday, March 20, 2024, to press home our demands,” they said.
