Information reaching DAILY GUIDE indicates that teachers in the country are planning a sit-down strike come Monday, May 27, 2013, to express their grievances over their unpaid allowances.

According to Norbert Gborgborji, spokesperson for Coalition of Concerned Teachers Association (CCTA) who said he was speaking on behalf of all the teacher associations in Ghana, they backed off their earlier strike because the government promised to pay their allowances. They also indicated that they had a change in their decision because of the pleas from parents who were worried about their wards in the final year.

“After we resumed, the government promised to settle us but they haven’t done anything about it,” he added.

Mr Gborgborji mentioned that a meeting was scheduled between the various teacher associations, Fair Wages and Salary Commission (FWSC) and Finance Ministry, but the Finance Ministry refused to turn up for the meeting.

He therefore called on parents whose children are in kindergarten to senior high school to take care of their children from Monday because teachers would not be at their various schools to take care of them.

The spokesperson said the teachers would rescind their decision when the government and Fair Wages and Salary Commission settle all their unpaid allowances due them.
