Teachers from the three major pre-tertiary teacher unions in Ghana have warned the government that they will embark on a series of industrial actions if their concerns regarding their conditions of service are not addressed by May 13, 2024.

The National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT) in a press conference held on 6th May, 2024, expressed dissatisfaction with the government’s negotiation terms and approach towards their conditions of service.
