NAGRAT threatens to Strike in June over Cost of Living Allowances

JUNE UG UTAG to embark on indefinite strike

EducationGhana| June 08| NAGRAT threatens to Strike in June over Cost of Living Allowances:

 

The Leadership of the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) at a press briefing at Accra on June 7,  has announced to the government that it intends to embark on strike action by the end of June 2022 if the government fails to grant them their Cost of Living Allowances (COLA).

The  Leadership of NAGRAT is demanding that the government pays 20 per cent Cost Of Living Allowance (COLA) to its members by the end of June 2022.

According to the leadership, things are now very difficult. “We have spoken about this thing and I have been compelled under the circumstances because our members have been calling day and night, there is an uneasy calm among the entre membership and there is the need for something to be done as soon as possible”

“The President had earlier said, and I quote, “we (government) know how to bring the economy back to life. What we do not know is how to bring people back to life. The question is what has changed? Mr. President, your people (workers) are dying; please attend to them now and do not prioritize the economy over the human resources. The worker can no longer bear the economic hardship,” the Vice President of the Association, Jacob Anaba recalled.

“This situation has resulted in the rank and file of our members calling for positive action. Therefore, we are by this conference serving notice to those who matter that their ineptitude towards the call by the Unions to grant COLA to the suffering Ghanaian Worker is leaving us no alternative than to respond to the incessant demands of our members.”

“We, therefore, demand that, as a matter of urgency, the Government must grant workers a Cost Of Living Allowance (COLA) of 20% at the end of June 2022. Leadership would be left with no option than to declare a strike by the end of July 2022, if all the requests made are not adhered to. Leadership hereby yields to the demand of members for positive action, beginning with the wearing of red bands by the end of June 2022, if the demands made are not met”, he added.
