EducationGhana| September 19| Teacher Unions to negotiate for Responsibility allowances for Basic School Class Teachers

The National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) has emphasised that it shall engage with sister Unions to exert the necessary pressure on GES to consider teachers in the Basic Schools, who perform responsibilities such as Class Teachers, House Master/Mistress, guidance and counselling coordinators, but do not receive any allowance to be given such.

The Union made this declaration on September 15, 2022, during its National Executive Council meeting held in the party’s headquarters at Adaabraka, Accra.

The Union also lamented, that the Payment of Responsibility allowance to teachers still remains a challenge. It is calling on the management of GES to resolve this without delay.
