EducationGnana| July 05| 2022 COLA STRIKE: The Loud Silence of Government on COLA requests Worrisome – Teacher Unions:

 

Teacher Unions in the Ghana Education Service 9GES) have described it as worrisome the continuous silence of the government on their requests for the payment of the Cost of Living Allowances (COLA) to its members.

 

The Unions said the government’s loud silence on their request shows their posture and care for the workers of Ghana. This was contained in a statement issued on July 4, 2022, to announce their strike action.

”Colleagues, you may recollect, and without sounding repetitive and monotonous. that the Unions have severally called for the government’s grant of a 20% Cost-Of Living-Allowance (COLA) to the Ghanaian Worker generally, and in particular, teachers and educational Workers of the Pre-Tertiary Education level.”

 

”These calls. unfortunately, have fallen on deaf ears. We wish to use this forum to express our displeasure over this insensitivity of the government regarding our demand.” The unions said.

 

Why COLA?

According to the Unions, their demand was influenced by the high level of inflation in the country; the incessant skyrocketing prices of fuel.
They added, that goods and services have eroded the already woefully so-called salary increases granted them as expressed in 4% and 7% for 2021 and 2022 respectively.

”Inflation in the country is currently 27.6% and continues to escalate ad infinitum; only God knows when this will abate.” They indicated.
”We are very much appalled at the inept attitude of the government relative to our call for COLA. We have severally on the different plat
forms and times made this call which fell on deaf ears of the government.” They said.
