Dr. Eric Nkansah, Acting Director-General of GES

The Employment and Labour Relations Ministry will today Monday, November 7, meet with the three striking teacher unions – the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, (CCT ) – over the appointment of a banker as the Director-General (D-G) of the Ghana Education Service.

The unions embarked on the action on Friday, November 4, “until further notice.”

The President of GNAT, Isaac Owusu at a presser stated that since the inception of the Ghana Education Service, 17 D-Gs have been appointed and all of them were educationists, as such, the appointment of Dr. Eric Nkansah as the D-G defies the norm.

Teacher Unions and Employment Ministry meeting inconclusive, strike continues 

Again, they insist that the extension of the contract of Lawyer Anthony Boateng for the third time is unacceptable because there are many directors in queue to occupy that position.

The Labour Ministry is expected to engage with them today. Deputy Minister of Employment and Labour Relations, Bright Wereko-Brobby is confident that an amicable agreement will be reached.

“This is a matter we can sit and discuss. So I am optimistic that nothing untoward will happen. The issues that they have raised will be looked at and will be resolved by Monday after we meet.”
