Three teacher unions have decided to call off their strike after two weeks of negotiations with the government to address conditions of service.

In a statement to the press, the unions [the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT) ] said the decision to end the strike comes as the Labour Commission secured an injunction last week to stop the ongoing strike.

“As law-abiding citizens and having respect for the court, we hereby declare the strike that was called on 20th March 2024 off. We ask all our members and teachers of pre-tertiary education in this country to resume work with immediate effect.

We continue to ask the employer-led by the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations to commence negotiations this afternoon, today April 2, 2024. So we can expedite the negotiations and come to a conclusion to forestall any other happenings in the future, the statement said.
