Teachers call off strike following court order


The Leadership of the three teacher unions – Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT) have called off their strike action, Angelfmonlinegh.com has learnt.

The leadership called off the strike action which was declared on December 9, 2019 following a court ruling declaring their action as illegal.

The NLC, which described the strike as illegal and a breach of Ghana’s labour laws, directed the teachers to call off the strike and return to work, but the directive was ignored.

The teachers at the time said they had not been officially served with such correspondence and they would respond if they were duly served.

NLC then proceeded to secure a court order to compel the three striking teacher unions to immediately call off their industrial action.

The leadership of the labour unions in a press release copied to Angelfmonlinegh.com called on all their members across the country to call off the strike action and return to work immediately.

“This decision of the three labour unions (GNAT, NAGRAT, CCT-Gh), was arrived at on the advice of our Lawyers in consequence of the Court Order dated Wednesday, December 11, 2019 to call off the nationwide strike action which commenced on Monday December 9, 2019 as law abiding citizens, we do forthwith,” the statement said.

The release stated that the leadership of the teachers union have ordered their Lawyers to procure copies of the court order.
