Striking teacher unions boycott Day 2 of meeting with govt after being dragged to NLC

The Government has dragged the striking teacher unions to the National Labour Commission (NLC) over their industrial action.

To that end, the leadership of the unions have decided not to take part in the Day 2 of the meeting with government officials, TV3’s Daniel Opoku reported on Tuesday.

On Monday November 7 the leadership of the unions asked their members to continue staying at home because their meeting with the government ended without a decision taken.

President of the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), Rev Isaac Owusu told TV3’s Daniel Opoku in an interview after the first day of the meeting on Monday November 7 that “I can tell you on authority that so far so good we have had a very constructive meeting. The parties have agreed to adjourn and resume tomorrow 2PM to continue with the deliberations.

“We have not ended the meeting, the agreement here is that the two parties have agreed that we should adjourn and resume tomorrow 2PM.”

He added “The teachers should remain calm and continue to stay at home.”

Deputy Minister of Employment and Labour Relations, Bright Wireko Brobbey also said “We have had another constructive meeting. We have to do further consultation, tomorrow God willing, we will bring this matter to a successful end.”
