Government’s Shocking Snub: College of Education Teachers Threaten Drastic Action

In a recent press conference held in Accra, the College of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) has accused the government of failing to comply with directives issued by the National Labour Commission (NLC), despite them being legally binding.



Addressing the media, Dr. Prince Obeng-Himah, the President of CETAG, highlighted several directives issued by the NLC, including the payment of a one-month salary based on the association’s proposed salary grade, the completion of an ongoing staff audit, and ensuring parity in salaries between CETAG members and their counterparts in public universities.



“The outstanding NLC Compulsory Arbitration awards for which our employer has deliberately refused to comply with their implementation are as follows…” Dr. Obeng-Himah stated, listing the directives that have allegedly been ignored by the government.



The President expressed concern that the government’s disregard for these directives could lead to disruptions in teaching and learning activities across teacher training colleges nationwide if left unresolved.



He emphasized the association’s stance on the matter, stating, “Based on the foregoing developments, it is now very clear to CETAG members that our employer is deliberately denying us our legitimate compulsory status, very clearly without any reasonable justification.”



Furthermore, Dr. Obeng-Himah issued a warning, stating that if the outstanding compulsory arbitration awards are not fully implemented by May 31, 2024, the association would be compelled to take action into their own hands.



In light of these developments, CETAG called upon relevant authorities, including the Ghana Tertiary Education Commission, the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations, and the Ministry of Finance, to immediately adhere to the NLC’s directives in order to maintain industrial peace.



The government is yet to respond to these accusations and demands made by CETAG.
