TEWU calls off strike after meeting government
The Teachers and Educational Workers Union (TEWU), has called off its industrial action following a meeting with the government over their concerns.
The suspension comes less than 24hrs after the union declared a strike on January 5, 2022, over non-payment of their professional development allowances and government’s failure to address the stated concerns.
Addressing the media on Tuesday, General Secretary of the Union, Mark Dankyira Korankye said, “We wish to inform the government and its agencies, parents and the Ghanaian public that as schools reopen tomorrow, 5th January 2022, they should not expect any of the non-teaching staff to be at post to render service.”
Subsequently, the leadership of TEWU and representatives from the Ministries of Education, Finance, and the Employment and Labour Relations met to deliberate the matter following which the union suspended the strike.
A committee has since been set up to resolve all issues tabled by TEWU.
