CETAG Displeased with Education Minister’s Response to Planned Strike


The Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) has expressed their dissatisfaction with the response of the Minister of Education, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, regarding their planned strike scheduled for August 1, 2023.

In a recent statement, the Education Minister suggested that CETAG should postpone their intended strike and instead seek appropriate ways to engage in a dialogue with the government to address their concerns, rather than resorting to industrial action.

The members of CETAG have responded negatively to the Minister’s comments, asserting that they have exhausted all the necessary and legal channels required for their plea.

According to CETAG, the only way to avert the strike scheduled for August 1, 2023, is for the government to acknowledge and meet their conditions of service.

They believe that it is the government’s lack of response and disregard for their grievances that has led them to this point.

They firmly maintain that until the government fulfills their demands and provides them with what is rightfully due, the strike will proceed as planned.
