Labour Commission Secures Injunction Against Teachers’ Strike

On Tuesday, the NLC in negotiations with unions, was able to meet three out of the nine issues raised by the teachers.

The National Labour Commission (NLC) has secured an interim injunction to stop the ongoing strike by three teacher unions.

“It is hereby ordered that the Respondents herein, whether by itself, its Executives, Officers, Members, Agents, Employees or other persons are restrained from the further continuation of their strike action of 20th March 2024,” the injunction granted by the High Court on Thursday said.

The unions [the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT) ] have been off work since March 20, demanding that the government meets certain requirements for improved conditions of service before returning to classrooms.

On Tuesday, the NLC in negotiations with unions, was able to meet three out of the nine issues raised by the teachers. These issues include the provision of laptops, the reinstatement of salaries blocked by the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP), and the establishment of terms of service for teachers.

The government had hoped the unions would call off the strike as it looked to resolve the remaining issues later on. But the teachers don’t seem to agree.
