The National Labour Commission (NLC) has summoned the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) and the three striking teacher unions to appear before them on Tuesday, March 26, 2024.

The teacher unions in question include the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, Ghana (CCT, Ghana), the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), and the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT).

These unions have declared an indefinite nationwide strike, citing a delay in the negotiation of their conditions of service and the freeze of salaries by the Office of the Special Prosecutor.

The NLC, in accordance with the Labour Act (2003), Act 651, has called for a hearing on the issues raised by the dispute.
