The Ghana Education Service (GES) is set to hold engagements with the leadership of the Teacher Unions that have declared an indefinite strike.

On Monday, July 4, 2022, four teacher Unions including the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT), and the Teachers and Educational Workers Union (TEWU) declared an indefinite strike over the government’s failure to pay Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) to members.

Reacting to the strike with a press release, GES says it has invited the leadership of the various unions to a meeting.

“Management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) has read from the media that the various Unions in the Pre-Tertiary Education sector have declared withdrawal of their services with immediate effect.

“Management has since invited the leadership of the Unions to a meeting to discuss the development and the way forward,” a GES press release signed by Cassandra Twum Ampofo reads.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Education Service has directed Heads of Senior High Schools to mobilise their Management teams to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all students in schools.

Regional and District Directors have also been directed to ensure that Basic School Heads keep schools open and closely supervise all children who report to school pending further directives from the Management of GES.

Below is a copy of the GES press release:
