The Colleges of Education Non-Teaching Staff Association of Ghana has served notice to embark on an indefinite strike effective Monday 11th April 2022 across all forty-six (46) public Colleges of Education in Ghana.

A statement issued by the National Secretary, Samuel Opoku said the move has been necessitated by the continuous disregard for the better conditions of service of its members.

The Association is seeking for government to fix the Wrong placement of First Degree Holders, Non-payment of migration arrears, Exclusion of payment of Generic Allowances, Partial payment of Office Holding Allowances, and  Non-payment of Interim Market Premium Arrears among others.

It would be recalled that a notice to embark on strike was served in January 2022 but could not be carried through due to the intervention of the National Labour Commission (NLC).

According to the Association, since January 2022, no commitment has been demonstrated to find a solution to the issues raised except for the partial payment of office holding allowances.

“The date given by the NLC for the government team to address the concerns raised had elapsed but no tangible solution had been professed. In the circumstances, we have no option than to embark on industrial action to press home our demands for equitable and better conditions of service.

“We are by this release informing all our members with the exception of the security class to stay away from College until otherwise instructed.”
