Teachers' strike suspended as NAGRAT dramatically calls off industrial action

An industrial action declared by the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) has been called off.

NAGRAT calls of its strike action

It follows the interventions of the Minister of Education, the Minister of Employment and Labour Relations, the National Labour Commission and the Ghana Education Service to address the challenges that necessitated the industrial action, NAGRAT said in a statement calling off the strike.

The strike was to push for the payment of the salary arrears of their members, which they claim, has been in arrears for three years.

At a news conference on Thursday to declare the strike, the President of NAGRAT, Angel Carbonu, said there hasn't been an agreement with the teachers since the expiration of their collective bargaining agreement.

Mr Carbonu said the HRMIS raised concern about the nonpayment of allowances for additional services rendered by teachers and expiration of their collective bargaining agreement.


He also raised concerns about delays in reinstating teachers who have completed their study leave, something he blamed on the human resources management information systems (HRMIS).

On the back of these issues, he has asked its members “who are yet to reopen” to “stay away from the school premises even when they reopen”.
