Teachers Issue One-Week Ultimatum To Govt Over Salary Arrears

10:41:00 AM

The Ghana National Association of Teachers (T), National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT) รข€" GH, have given the government a one-week ultimatum to address issues concerning their salary arrears.

In a letter dated October 17, 2017, addressed to the Finance Minister, the teachers said: We refer to our letter dated 21st June 2017 and subsequent meetings that followed on the subject matter above and regret that the concerns raised have been left unaddressed to date.

According to them, in the said meeting, the stakeholders agreed in principle to start the validation exercise of teachers for payment of salary arrears on September 11, 2017, for which notices were sent to members across the country.

They are added that in addition to the resolution of the meeting, it was agreed that 65013 forms were to be validated in 88 days.

However, they said they are amazed that as we write and one month down the line, no action has been taken to begin the exercise and we see this as a deliberate ploy and betrayal of fine faith in dealing with the matter.

For them, the circumstances in which we find ourselves, it would be extremely difficult for the leadership to restrain our members from expressing their rage in forms that may affect the sanctity of the school environment.

They are therefore calling on the government to address their concerns within the stipulated period or they will be forced to use other channels to seek redress.
