The Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) has issued a directive compelling the Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) to cease its ongoing industrial action with immediate effect. This mandate follows CETAG’s announcement of an indefinite strike starting June 14, 2024, citing the government’s delay in implementing the National Labour Commission’s Arbitral Award Orders and agreed service conditions.

The strike, impacting all 46 public colleges of education in Ghana, drew sharp criticism from the FWSC, which condemned the timing as detrimental and accused CETAG of acting in bad faith despite ongoing governmental efforts to address their concerns. The FWSC emphasized the government’s commitment to resolving the issues at hand and urged CETAG to resume teaching while discussions towards a resolution continue.

“We strongly believe that resolving this matter promptly is in the best interest of our colleagues teaching in colleges of education,” a FWSC spokesperson stated, highlighting the government’s proactive stance in seeking a mutually beneficial solution.
