DECLARATION OF INDEFINITE STRIKE BY ALL 46 COLLEGES OF EDUCATION STARTING
A Letter sited by seekersnewsgh.com indicate all the 46 colleges are to embark on an indefinite strike.
The letter reads,
The Colleges of Education Non-Teaching Staff Association of Ghana shall embark on an indefinite strike starting Monday 11 April 2022 across all forty-six (46) public Colleges of Education in Ghana.
The issues of our action are grounded on the following:
1. Wrong placement of First Degree Holders.
2. Non-payment of migration arrears
3. Exclusion of payment of Generic Allowances
4. Partial payment of Office Holding Allowances
5. Non-payment of Interim Market Premium Arrears
The decision to embark on strike has been necessitated by the continuous disregard for the above issues affecting the welfare of our members.
It will be recalled that a notice to embark on strike was served in January 2022 but could not be carried through due to the intervention of the National Labour Commission (NLC).
It is unfortunate that since January 2022, no commitment has been demonstrated to find solution to the issues raised except for the partial payment of office holding allowances.
The date given by the NLC for the government team to address the concerns raised had clapsed but no tangible solution had been professed. In the circumstances, we have no option than to embark on industrial action to press home our demands for equitable and better conditions of service.
We are by this release informing all our members with the exception of the security class to stay away from College until otherwise instructed.
