The College of Education Teachers’ Association of Ghana has suspended its five-week industrial action with immediate effect.
This follows a majority vote by the local branches under the association to call off their strike premised on an assurance by the Education Minister to resolve their concerns within two weeks after suspension.
Out of the 35 colleges that voted online, 19 of them, forming the majority, agreed to suspend the strike but would resume if their outstanding issues are not resolved as promised.
The remaining 16 voted to continue with industrial action until their welfare demands are met.
However, eleven of the teacher training schools abstained from voting.
Teachers at the 46 Colleges of Education nationwide are expected to resume work on Monday, 19th December 2022.
In a letter signed by the association’s national president, Prince Himah, he assured members of the leadership’s resolve to negotiate better conditions of service.
“Leadership promise to go to all length so that CETAG will get the best out of the engagement that is going to ensue as we suspend our destiny strike today, hoping the Minister and the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission shall take the necessary steps as promised to bring finality to bear on all the unresolved issues of CETAG,” portions of the statement read.
