Students at the 46 colleges of education across the country are urging the government to address the demands of their teachers, whose ongoing strike is severely impacting their education.

The strike, now in its fourth day, stems from the government’s delay in implementing the National Labour Commission’s (NLC) Arbitral Award Orders and negotiated service conditions.

The disruption has thrown academic schedules into disarray, with students expressing concerns about the long-term consequences on their studies.

Speaking on A1 Radio, Mr. Awine Samuel Asampana, a student representative from Saint John Bosco’s College of Education in the Upper East Region, called on the government to immediately intervene.

According to him, “Our academic course outlines are greatly disrupted, and this will have significant consequences on our studies.”

The teachers, represented by the Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG), are striking to secure their economic rights under Article 24(1) of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana and Section 10 (a) and (b) of the Labour Act, 2003 (Act 651).

CETAG’s National President, Mr. Prince Obeng-Himah, who also spoke on A1 Radio, highlighted the need for the government to honor its commitments, including the payment of one month’s salary for additional duties performed in 2022 and the application of agreed rates of allowances payable to public universities to deserving CETAG members.

Obeng-Himah further underscored that the strike aims to ensure fair treatment and economic justice for the teachers.

“The strike is to guarantee the economic rights of our members. We seek nothing more than what is legally and rightfully due to us,” he stated.

They, however, are appealing to the government to expedite negotiations and fulfill the teachers’ demands to resume normal academic activities.
