CETAG declares indefinite strike

The Colleges of Education Teacher’s Association of Ghana (CETAG), has declared an indefinite strike starting Friday, June 14.

This is in response to the government’s delay in implementing the National Labour Commission’s (NLC) Arbitral Award Orders and negotiated service conditions.

This strike affects all 46 public colleges of education nationwide.

CETAG’s demands include the payment of one month’s salary to each member for additional duties performed in 2022, and the application of agreed rates of allowances payable to public universities to deserving CETAG members.

According to the leadership of CETAG, the strike aims to put pressure on the government to fulfil these commitments.

In a statement issued on June 14, 2024, CETAG emphasised that the strike is intended to safeguard the economic rights of its members as outlined in Article 24(1) of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana and Section 10 (a) and (b) of the Labour Act, 2003 (Act 651).

The association stressed the importance of upholding these legal and constitutional protections.

CETAG has urged its members to withdraw from teaching and related services indefinitely until their grievances are addressed.

“CETAG wishes to call on every member to immediately comply with this declaration by withdrawing teaching and related services indefinitely across all 46 public colleges of education until all the orders arising from the Compulsory Arbitration Awards and related concerns are fully implemented by way of payments to our members and implementations thereof. Thank you.”
