The money saw some deductions which the Teachers were not happy about.
Due to the deductions last year, the teachers have this year, issued so many warnings to the unions and government not to think of making any deductions.

Alert to Government to pay PDA
The surprising thing nobody turned their mind to was, the Teacher Unions telling the government to pay the Professional Allowance before 31st December 2022.
What have they heard that their members have not? GNAT Charges on GES/ MOE; Laptops, refund of the GHS44.55 to teachers, PDA Payment, and many more
If it’s the responsibility of the government to pay the Professional Development allowance, why do they have to remind GES/ Government and also add it to their reason for the strike action they took against the appointment of the New Director General?
Some believe it’s well negotiated hence there is no reason the government won’t pay.
Currently, the strike reasons are still pending Update on the Teachers’ Strike; Meeting with NLC on 16th November and the 8% matters
There are also salary negotiations ongoing Explanations to the NLC 10% Minimum wage and 15 % COLA for 2023
The Labour unions earlier proposed a 60% Base pay increment whilst the Government is meeting them at 12%.
Some even suggested their salaries are pegged to the US Dollar to curtail the drastic depreciation of the salary.
