Striking teachers to return to class following court order

The three striking Teacher Unions who embarked on a strike have agreed to call off the action following a court order secured by the National Labour Commission.

The order by an Accra High Court compelled the teachers to discontinue the industrial action.

The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT) on December 5, 2019, declared a strike after a series of failed engagements with the government on Legacy Arrears incurred between 2012 and 2016.

The National Labour Commission while describing the industrial action as illegal, accused the Unions of failing to notify the commission before embarking on their strike.
