Fair Wages Commission Invites The Three Teacher Unions to the Negotiation Table

The Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) has extended an invitation to the three striking Teacher Unions to resume negotiations and swiftly reach a consensus on the conditions of service.

In a letter dated 2nd April, 2024, the FWSC requested the presence of the leadership of the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) and other stakeholders for a meeting scheduled to take place on Thursday, 4th April, 2024, at 10:00am in the Ministry of Education (MoE) Conference Room.

The three Teacher Unions; the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers-Ghana (CCT-Ghana), have also called off their strike action which commenced on Wednesday, March 20.

This development comes as a result of the National Labour Commission (NLC) securing an interim injunction to halt the industrial action.

The injunction paves the way for negotiations to take place and seeks to resolve the dispute amicably.
