NAGRAT ends strike action


Techiman (B/A) June 11, GNA - The National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) has called off its almost month-old strike action in demand for better service conditions.

A reliable source told the Ghana News Agency at Techiman in Brong Ahafo Region, where the meeting of the NAGRAT Council took place on Saturday, that the decision was arrived at after lengthy discussions. The source said the meeting ended at about 1330 hours but the Leadership of NAGRAT "decided to hold the nation to ransom for obvious reasons, and decided that a formal announcement should be made at a press conference on Monday, more than 48 hours after the decision had been taken".

The source said the Council took the decision to call off the strike in view of the flood of pleas from a cross section of the Ghanaian population and the precarious situation that the strike action had placed the fate of final year Senior Secondary School (SSS) students, who are preparing to write their final examinations.
