Teachers strike: Remain calm; we’re monitoring – GES to parents, guardians



Management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) – the agency in charge of pretertiary education in Ghana – has appealed to parents and guardians of students in schools under their management to remain calm following the declaration of an indefinite strike by teachers and educational workers on July 4, 2022.

“Parents are advised to remain calm and be assured that management is closely monitoring the situation and will advise on the way forward accordingly,” a press release dated July 5, 2022, and signed by Cassandra Twum Ampofo, Head of the Public Relations Unit, said.

The release also announced that the leadership of the teacher unions has been invited to a meeting to discuss the matter, adding that Regional and District Directors have been directed to ensure the safety of all students.

The teachers belong to four different teacher unions namely, the Ghana National Association of Teachers(GNAT), the National Association of Graduate Teachers(NAGRAT), the Coalition of Concerned Teachers ( CCT), and the Teachers and Educational Workers Union (TEWU), declared the strike due to Government’s failure to pay them a cost of living allowance ( COLA) they had demanded at the beginning of the year as a result of the rising cost of living.
