The Collective Agreement is a document that contains the accepted conditions of service of workers in the Ghana Education Service (GES) as agreed upon by their Union leadership and representatives of the GES at a meeting organized for such purpose.

 

In August 2020, both parties met to decide on an agreement after the 2009 Collective Agreement expired several years without being renewed.

 

The Collective Agreement outlined the Content of the Letter of Appointment of teachers recruited into the Ghana Education Service (GES).

5. Should the nature of the existing job be substantially changed such that the old salary is not appropriate, GES and the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) on the one hand, and the Union, on the other hand, shall meet to agree upon a new salary which is consistent with the new or changed job based on a re-evaluation of the job.
