Teachers in the public basic and senior high schools are escalating their strike until their concerns regarding conditions of service and other matters are adequately addressed.

Members of the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers Ghana have all taken a firm stance, vowing not to return to the classroom.

In an effort to resolve the ongoing dispute, a meeting between the teachers and the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations recently took place, however, no consensus was reached

The Vice President of NAGRAT, Jacob Anaba, has expressed that the teachers are committed to making up for lost time but emphasized that their return to the classroom depends on the Ministry’s willingness to meet their demands.

Anaba stated, “What will bring us back to the classroom will be when we have a memorandum of understanding indicating clearly a roadmap as to what they will do in terms of our demands.”
