New Pay For Teachers While They Wait Salaries Under Single Spine

By GNA
Negotiations have opened for public sector teachers to be put on a new pay structure while government and other stakeholders fine-tune the new single spine pay regime in the offing.
    
Nana Pobee Asomaning Darko, Volta Regional Secretary of the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), said this at the 37th Annual Conference of Managers and Heads of Anglican Higher Institutions (COMHAI) that opened in Ho yesterday.
    
He said the new salaries would help teachers cope with the rising cost of living while waiting for government to implement the overhauled pay structure going along with the public sector reforms.
    
Nana Darko called on all teacher unions and associations to act in concert to champion the cause of teachers and that the welfare of the teacher represented the pivot of all reforms in the educational sector.
    
The five-day meeting being attended by Heads of Anglican Higher Institutions and Regional Managers of Anglican Schools among others is under the theme 'New Educational Reform, the Role of the Anglican Church.
    
Mr Mike Abban, General Manager of Anglican Schools, said the Church would facilitate the provision of more resources to enable their schools regain lost glories.  He said growing indiscipline in schools was a grave one and that mission schools had the duty to infuse piety in their students as part of their education.
