The Graduate Teacher for Eceleng Date: 23kD OCTOBER. 2023

Ladies and gentlemen, of the Press we are happy to invite you this afternoon on our issues
concerming our condition of service.

As you are all aware the Ghanaian teacher lags behind when it comes to issues ol
compensations and remuneration, despite the fact that the teacher works under very
challenging conditions everywhere in this country.

Itis sad to inform you that our collective bargaining agreement has expired since 2022, and
we expect that a new agreement is concuded immediately.

Ladies and gentlemen we are all public sector workers, working for the samc government
and the same country and yet, our government sees it necessary to include in the conditions
of service for other sector workers, benefits that are not found in the conditions of service
for others

We For example, there are public sector workers who are enjoying rent allowance, transport
allowance, entertainment allowance, electricity subsidy and other juicy allowances that the
Ghanaiun teacher does not enjoy.

We are by this press conference calling on our leadership to ensure that benefits that othe
public sector workers are enjoying, should be enjoyed by the Ghanaian teacher.

The Ghanaian teacher cannot be hoping for reward in heaven while others are enjoying
here on carth.

Ve are therefore, calling on our leadership to be steadfast in negotiating for new conditions
of service to ensure industrial peace and hamony. Failure to do this, we will have no other
option than to advise ourselves.
