CETAG Strike Update – 29th November 2022

Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) embark on a strike for the past two weeks and are yet to resume academic activities.

All academic activities in the colleges of education were paused including services from the non-teaching staff but recently they have suspended their strike action (non-teaching staff).

The strike action by CETAG has affected students academically to the point that where students lamented to be allowed to go home since they don’t know when the strike will be over.

The management of the National Labour Commission (NLC) last week summoned the group after the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission sent a complaint to the enforcement body.

President of CETAG, Prince Obeng-Hemang in an interview with Citi News said the Union is bent on demanding better conditions from Government before it calls off its strike.

CETAG Strike Update – 29th November 2022

This is what the president of CETAG said about the strike action:

“As of last Friday, the strike was still in force, and we went to the National Labour Commission following a summoning letter we received from the Commission on Wednesday around noon.

The Fair Wages and Salaries Commission made the complainant say they went and withdrew the case to pave the way for further engagement through their work.

We were also in a national council meeting in Kumasi, so we told them we will be ready for any further engagement, but that will be after our council meeting.

We were waiting for written notification from any agency willing to engage us, and then we will proceed to attend. So Council determined that we should proceed or continue to be on the strike until such a time that the conditions and all the things we are asking for are given. So we will be in a position to further engage if we get an invitation from the government,” he said.

CETAG is among other things on strike over the “non-finalization of Conditions of Service (CoS) negotiations, unilateral determination of April 2023 by the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) as the effective date for placing First Degree Holders of CENTSAG on 17H on the SSSS, and undue delay by the Ministry of Education in responding to our request for payment of compensation”.

This is to say that the CETAG Union is not calling off the strike until a full and better condition of service is agreed on.

The strike is not called off.
