Colleges of Education teachers threaten strike


The Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) has warned members will embark on strike, effective Thursday, January 6, 2022, if their demands on accumulated bonuses are not addressed.

The National President, Prince Obeng-Hemah, in an interview on 3FM’s Sunriseon Monday, December 13 explained that failure of government to redeem its promises to them is the reason for their intended industrial action.

According to him, CETAG and the government signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on September 24, 2021, in respect of their conditions of service for 2017 to 2020.

“The effective date for the implementation of the agreement was January 1, 2021, but this has not been done. We have been pushed to the wall, Alfred,” he related to show hosted Alfred Ocansey.

Mr. Obeng-Hemah explained that under the signed agreement, the government was expected to authorise the payment of accumulated arrears of nine months in October, November and December, 2021, “but government is yet to honour its promise in that regard”.

“The month of October and November 2021 ended without any payment being made to the members of the Association.

“CETAG members are anxiously and patiently waiting for payment of the agreed allowances (January, 2021 to December, 2021) at the end of December, 2021, without which the Association shall activate its intended strike action”.

He said “the intended strike action will involve all the 46 Colleges of Education under its watch, if their concerns are not addressed by the end of December, 2021”.
