CLOGSAG supports the teachers’ union in the call for “GES D-G must go”
The three teacher unions that are on strike because Dr. Eric Nkansah has been named the next director-general of the Ghana Education Service have the support of the Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG).
Similar appointments in the Civil Service and the Local Government Service, according to CLOGSAG, are not conducive to industrial peace.
As an illustration, it used the appointment of the Registrar at the Births and Deaths Registry in order to promote industrial peace, CLOGSAG has urged the government to pay attention to the teacher unions.
It is important to note that the Public Services Commission should be consulted before the governing council of the agency in question recommends a candidate for appointment, according to CLOGSAG.
The three unions are the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, Ghana, the Ghana National Association of Teachers, and the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) (CCT).
Since November 4 of 2022, they have been on strike. They’ve been queried by the National Labour Commission to end the walkout and speak with their employers.
