Ghana’s teachers embark on strike over harsh economic conditions



Pre-tertiary teachers’ unions in Ghana called a nationwide strike on Monday to demand the payment of the cost-of-living allowance.

To counterbalance the increased expense of living, the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the National Association of Graduate Teachers, the Teachers and Educational Workers Union, and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers have all called for a 20% living allowance.

According to Newsghana, During a joint press conference on Monday, GNAT General Secretary Thomas Musah stated that all of their requests to the government to take proper action on their issues had gone unanswered.

“We can’t take the pain any longer.” We have been forced by the existing circumstances to openly express to Ghanaians our determination to go on strike, having missed the June 30 deadline we set for the government to pay the cost-of-living stipend,” he stated.

“By doing so, we are alerting the general public that we will be withdrawing all of our services in the pre-tertiary education arena, including teaching and non-teaching staff.”
