The Fair Wages and Salaries Commission has called for an emergency meeting with the Teachers and Educational Workers’ Union (TEWU) over the nationwide strike.

This is after members of the Union began their industrial action demanding better conditions of service.

According to TEWU, it is regrettable that for close to two years, the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission has not been able to finalize issues on its condition of service, while members continue to work under very difficult situations.

But describing the action as unfortunate, the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission said the two parties will finalize negotiations following their last meeting on October 20, 2020.

In a statement signed by the Chief Executive Officer, Edward Kwapong, the Commission indicated that the meeting has been scheduled for Thursday, January 14, 2021.
