K-poly striking teachers yet to return to the classroom
Striking teachers at the Kumasi polytechnic will hold an emergency meeting on Monday to decide the next line of action in their ongoing industrial action
Polytechnic teachers in Kumasi, Sunyani and Takoradi embarked on strike two weeks ago, in agitation over anomalies in their migration onto the single spine salary structure.
The Labour Commission has now given the Polytechnic Teachers Association of Ghana (POTAG) and the Fair Wages Commission two weeks to address the teachers' concerns.
National executives of the Polytechnic Teachers Association of Ghana (POTAG) have therefore directed the striking teachers to return to work immediately.
The decision was taken at the Association's Congress in Bolgatanga.
Local POTAG Chairman at Kumasi Polytechnic, Edmond Oppong-Peprah told Luv News members will take a decision at Monday's emergency meeting.
“The ultimate decision lies with the POTAG Kumasi Polytechnic. They will decide whether to suspend the strike or not”, he said.
He is however optimistic “good sense and judgment will prevail” at the end of the meeting.
