Ferdinand|EducationGhana|November 14| Top 6 Reasons why College of Education Teachers resume indefinite strike starting November 14

Teaching and Non-Teaching Staff of the 46 public Colleges of education have resumed an indefinite strike action in relation to their Conditions of Service.

They made this known in a press statement below:

 

Following the Joint-Communiqué issued by CETAG and CENTSAG on Sunday 6th November 2022 giving the employer five crucial working days to address our concerns failure of which we shall reactivate our suspended indefinite strikes,

the National Councils of both CETAG and CENTSAG held separate emergency meetings on Friday 11th and Saturday 12th November 2022 respectively and affirmed the decision to reactivate our suspended indefinite industrial actions effective Monday, 14th November 2022.

 

Our decision to withdraw our services indefinitely is a result of the following:

1. Failure of the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) to make available to CETAG and CENTSAG a draft Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) which clearly captures what the parties mutually agreed on at the end of our negotiations for us to study before proceeding to sign off.

 

2. Unilateral variation of the effective date of CETAG’s 2021 Conditions of Service (CoS) by FWSC from 1st January 2022 to 1st January 2023 contrary to the Rules of Engagement for the negotiations.

 

3. Unilateral determination of April 2023 by the FWSC as the effective date for placing First Degree Holders of CENTSAG on 17H on the SSSS contrary to the Rules of Engagement for the negotiations.

 

4. Undue the delay of the Ministry of Education to give approval for the payment of compensation for the all-year-round work to a staff of the colleges of education.

 

5. Unfair retrospective deduction of office holding allowances paid to some members of CENTSAG and CETAG by the Controller and Accountant-General’s Department (CAGD).

 

6. Deliberate variation of Fuel, Vehicle Maintenance and Off-Campus allowances of CETAG and CENTSAG members as compared to our counterparts in other analogous institutions in the face of the rising cost of fuel prices in the country.

The National Councils of CETAG and CENTSAG wish to use this communiqué to entreat all members, with the exception of the colleges’ security department,

to comply with the decision to withdraw our services indefinitely until the employer has unconditionally addressed all our concerns regarding CoS,

the effective date for placing First Degree Holders, retrospective deductions, variation of fuel, vehicle maintenance and off-campus allowance as well as compensation for the all-year-round work.

Thank you.
