Ghana: Teachers begin strike over conditions of service

Members of Ghana’s Teachers’ and Educational Workers’ Union (TEWU) have declared an intention to embark on a nationwide strike beginning this morning. 

According to the union, this has been necessitated by the failure of the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission to conclude negotiation on their demand for better conditions of service.

In an earlier statement, the union said it would advise itself if the Commission failed to immediately conclude negotiation on the new conditions of service for the Unionised Staff of the public universities before the beginning of the academic year, in January 2021, which would come with added responsibility with the intake of the first batch of graduates of the Free Senior High School.
