The management of Colleges of Education Non-Teaching Staff Association of Ghana (CENTSAG) has suspended it strike action following an intervention by the National Labour Commission (NLC) of Ghana.
The strike which begun on 11th April 2022 follows what the union terms as the hesitancy of the appropriate authorities to act on their demand for better conditions of service.
However, the NLC at a meeting with the leaders of the Union has ordered an immediate call off of the strike and return to the drawing board since the approach did not follow due process.
According to NLC, the (CENTSAG) could not defend themselves and ended up apologizing for failing to appear before the Commission on the 30th of March and going ahead to declare a strike without reverence to us. The Commission thus declared the strike illegal and ordered that they call off the strike.
“We have asked that they meet with GTEC, and update us on the resolutions from the meeting”, NLC said.
CENTSAG is to return to NLC on Wednesday, April 20, 2022, to report the outcome of our engagement with GTEC and other interested parties.
Again, CENTSAG in a release has warned its employer and all stakeholders that it will resume the strike on Wednesday, April 20, 2022, or thereafter should the issues at stake remain unresolved without serving any additional notice of strike.
“May we reiterate that given the exigency under which we are suspending this strike, Management of the Colleges of Education should expect a spontaneous response by the members of CENTSAG to resume duty however, it is possible that this communication will not reach all our members on time”, the release stated.
Below is the first release of the strike
