The negotiation meeting between the government and striking teacher unions on Wednesday, March 27th, 2024, hit an impasse as the unions firmly stood by their decision to disregard the National Labour Commission’s directive to halt the strike.

Professor Charles Adabo Oppong, the Director of Grievances and Negotiations at the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission, emphasized that progress in the negotiation process hinges on the end of the strike initiated by the unions.

There remains a glimmer of hope that the unions will reconsider their stance and call off the strike to allow for further discussions to take place.

Despite the deadlock, both parties have been directed to report to the National Labour Commission on April 17, 2024, providing an update on the outcomes and compromises reached during their initial negotiations.
