2023; Teacher Unions Ready to Review Collective Agreement For Teaching Staff  within the GES. New Request.

Teachers have always asked for Review of their Collective Agreement with the Government as the Agreement over the years saw many violations.

Teachers Salary; according to Some few Teachers, the salary is actually not bad but there are no allowances and this makes the Ghanaian Teacher Handicap.

Re-visiting the Collective Agreement for Teachers (2020 Agreement) we saw more than 20 Allowances and benefits entitled to the Teacher. Check more here  Approved Rates of allowances for Teaching Staff within GES

These allowances are not paid to the Teachers just some few, other workers may not complain of their salary because they are well compensated with other allowances which see them through.

The Teaching Job is not a Joke. Molding Human Resource.

During the Base pay negotiations, a poll run by Seekersnewsgh shows that, Teachers would be happy with the increment of the Base Pay  but that is not what they want, they want allowances like their Class mates, their Course Mates, their friends in other institutions. Mentioning Cloth Allowance, Rent Allowance, Medical Care etc and they’re all here Rates of allowances for Teaching Staff within GES

Teacher Unions after the Confirmation on the Collective Agreement have to come and fight again for some individual items Agreed Upon in the Collective Agreement.

Allowance for Teachers in Rural Areas ; Rural Area allowances for Teaching Staff within GES,

Because of the Situation there, a whole School  may be managed by a single Teacher. These allowance may entice some to accept postings to such areas.

And the Appointment of Dr. Eric Nkansah who according to teacher unions is not a Teacher but a Banker -Teacher Unions  rejects Banker as the Director of GES; the Unions said they specifically bargain for that reserved Position for Teachers who move up the Ranks.  These led to serious distortion in School Activities in the Country for over Five Working days.
