Three unions representing teachers have ended their two-week strike, which began nationwide on March 20, 2024, citing the government’s neglect of their service conditions. The decision to halt the strike follows an interim injunction from the National Labour Commission (NLC), allowing negotiations to begin. These unions, comprising the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT), emphasized the urgency for their employers to promptly engage in talks to address their grievances.

King Ali Awudu, President of the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, Ghana, announced the end of the strike in a media statement in Accra on Tuesday, urging members and pre-tertiary educators to resume work immediately. He further urged the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations to initiate negotiations on April 2, 2024, to expedite the process and prevent future disruptions.

“As law abiding citizens and having respect for the court, we hereby declare the strike that was called on 20th March 2024 off. We ask all our members and teachers of pre tertiary education in this country to resume work with immediate effect.”

“We continue to ask the employer led by the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations to commence negotiations this afternoon, today April 2 2024. So we can expedite the negotiations and come to a conclusion to forestall any other happenings in the future,” he stated.
