Share this

The National Labour Commission (NLC) has asked striking teachers to call off their ongoing strike.

It follows a mediation meeting with the teacher unions, Ghana Education Service, Ministry of Education and other stakeholders in the employment industry.

The National Association of Graduate Teachers, the Ghana National Association of Teachers, and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, are demanding payment of legacy arrears owed their members between 2012 and 2015.

The strike, which began on Monday, is already affecting teaching and learning negatively. The Commission after hearing the Ghana Education Service on the matter said the teacher’s failure to notify the NLC and their employer have flouted Section 159 of the Labour Act 2003, Act 651.
