Teacher unions send strong message to govt over 4% salary increment

    Teacher Unions have cautioned the government to take a second look at the four percent salary increment for public sector workers.

    They say if the government fails to address their needs, it will not be able to contain them.

    The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) has threatened to embark on an industrial strike action if the government does not reconsider its decision.

    They made the call at the 6th Quadrennial (53rd) Regional Delegates’ Conference on the theme GNAT @90, Surviving as Reliable and Vibrant Teacher Union in the 21st Century: Challenges and Prospects for broader membership participation.

    The Greater Accra Regional Chairman of GNAT, Ransford Kofi Nsiah Lolih, said the increment for the next two years was inadequate and recipe for disaster.

    He used the opportunity to call on the government to make teaching and learning materials available to ensure quality education whilst arrears are paid to teachers.
