Colleges of Education teachers on strike over unpaid salaries

Teachers at Ghana’s colleges of education have begun a nationwide strike to protest unpaid salaries spanning 12 months.

Early on, the Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) threatened to embark on the strike if the government failed to pay salary arrears owed its members since October 2016.

According to them, per the migration of the tertiary statuses of the Colleges of Education following the passage of the Colleges of Education Act 847 in 2012, the teachers were expected to be paid the salary difference between their previous salary levels and the new salaries from January to September 2016.

CETAG  has said that, until the arrears are paid, they are withdrawing their services from the 38 colleges across the country.
