CETAG, CENTSAG strike over conditions of service
Due to the government’s neglect of their welfare, the Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) and the Colleges of Education Non-Teaching Staff Association of Ghana (CENTSAG) have started an indefinite strike in all 46 of the country’s colleges of education.
The groups expressed their disappointment over a number of issues, including the failure of the Conditions of Service (CoS) negotiations to reach a conclusion, the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission’s (FWSC’s) unilateral determination of April 2023 as the start date for the placement of First Degree Holders of CENTSAG on 17H on the SSSS, and the Ministry of Education’s excessive delay in responding to requests for the payment of compensation.
Last Monday, they issued the government a five-day deadline to address their concerns or face a strike.
After the deadline passed, CETAG and CENTSAG announced a strike that will last until their demands are satisfied. The strike will begin today, Monday, November 14, 2022.
