The Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) and the Colleges of Education Non-Teaching Staff Association of Ghana (CENTSAG) have reactivated their suspended strike today, November 14, 2022.

CETAG and CENTSAG groups from all 46 colleges of education across the country are embarking on the strike over the government’s failure to address issues regarding their welfare.

According to a press statement dated November 13, 2022, the two unions affirmed their decision after they held separate emergency meetings on Friday, November 11 and Saturday, November 12, 2022.

“The National Councils of CETAG and CENTSAG wish to use this communique to entreat all members, with the exception of the colleges’ security department, to comply with the decision to withdraw our services indefinitely until the employer has unconditionally addressed all our concerns regarding CoS, effective date for placing First Degree Holders, retrospective deductions, variation of fuel, vehicle maintenance and off-campus allowance as well as compensation for the all-year-round work,” the statement stated.

This comes after the CETAG and CENTSAG gave the government a 5-day ultimatum on Sunday, November 6, 2022.

They threatened to strike if the government did not solve their welfare issues in five days.

A joint communique by the leadership of CETAG and CENTSAG expressed their displeasure over the government’s handling of issues affecting the welfare of members over the years.

The issues, according to them, are non-finalisation of Conditions of Service (CoS) negotiations, unilateral determination of April 2023  by the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) as the effective date for placing First Degree Holders of CENTSAG on 17H on the Single Spine Salary Structure (SSSS) and undue delay by the Ministry of Education in responding to their request for payment of compensation for all-year-round work to both teaching and non-teaching staff.

Others are the deliberate variation of fuel, maintenance and off-campus allowance of members compared to their counterparts in other institutions and the unfair retrospective deductions of office holding allowances paid to some members of CETAG and CENTSAG.
