All teachers in the 46 public Colleges of Education who are members of the Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana, CETAG will from today, 1st September, 2022 take their 28 days annual leave.
On the 22nd of last month, CETAG issued a statement demanding their full conditions of Service and other compensatory packages.
The group gave government up to August 31 which was yesterday to address their concerns. It is therefore believed that this action is in protest against government’s inability to meet their demands.
However speaking on news and current affairs’ programme ‘Behind the News’, the President of the Teacher Trainees Association, Jonathan Dzunu, said this action will have dire consequences on their academic activities.
He pleaded with CETAG members to rescind their decision.
Meanwhile, the Ranking member on the Education Committee in Parliament, Peter Nortsu Kotoe, said the Committee hopes to meet CETAG members in the coming weeks to look into their concerns.
He however pleaded with CETAG members to go back to the negotiations table to sort out their conditions of Service.
