Teacher unions petition regional minister

Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), and Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT-GH) have jointly expressed their discontent over the prevailing conditions affecting their members.

Despite repeated calls on the government to address their concerns, the unions have felt compelled to escalate their protests to the regional level.

The primary issues at hand revolve around various allowances and commitments promised to teachers.

Among the grievances outlined are the Extra Assessment Allowance, Book Data/Online Allowance, Teaching Support Allowance, and the upward adjustment of the CPD Allowance.

The unions stress that these are not mere demands but commitments that the government has made to improve the welfare of teachers across the country.

Mr. Kassim Seidu Baba, the regional Secretary of NAGRAT, spearheaded the presentation of the petition to the Volta regional coordinating council.

The unions are seeking urgent action from the government to alleviate the challenges faced by their members.

Upon receiving the petition on behalf of the Volta regional minister, Dr. Archibald Yao Letsa, Mr. Augustus Awiti, the coordinating Director, assured the teachers that their concerns would be duly addressed.

He pledged the government’s commitment to responding to the challenges faced by educators and hinted at potential measures to resolve the issues raised.

The unions remain resolute in their pursuit of improved working conditions and are hopeful that their petition will yield positive outcomes for teachers in the Volta and Oti regions, as well as across Ghana.
