    EducationGhana| September 30| The Collective Agreement of Teachers in the Ghana Education Service

    The Collective Agreement is a document which 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.

    Who are the Beneficiaries of the Collective Agreement?

    The Collective Agreement is for full-time teachers within the Ghana Education Service (GES). It was effective from January 2020.

    Application and Scope

    This Collective Agreement shall apply to all full-time teachers within the GES who are members of the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT),

    National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) and Coalition of Concerned Teachers Ghana (CCT GH) under the leadership of GNAT], (from now on referred to as the “the Union”).

    Interpretation of the Collective Agreement

    In the event of any dispute arising from the interpretation of any
    provision of this Collective Agreement between the Union and
    Management, the dispute shall be referred to the GES Council and
    subsequently the National Labour Commission (NLC) and the Courts
    in that order for determination.

    What is the Purpose and Intent of the Collective Agreement?

    The purpose of this Agreement is to set forth the conditions of service relating to salaries, wages, hours of work and other conditions and rules of employment.

    Both parties do recognize and agree to promote the growth and development of cooperation, trust, respect and fairness and endeavour to uphold these values in the formulation of policies and standards of management in the GES.

    The parties believe that these attitudes can be encouraged best when it is made clear that the Employer and the Union who were involved in the negotiation of this Agreement was not anti-union or antimanagement but was sincerely concerned with the best interest and
    the well-being of the GES and all teaching employees as well as creating an environment that provides satisfaction, incentives and motivation for hard work and thereby increase productivity.
