NLC secures injunction against teachers’ strike

Source The Ghana Report

The National Labour Commission (NLC) has obtained an interim injunction to stop the strike by the three teacher unions.

This comes after the teachers refused an order from the NLC to call off the nationwide strike.

According to the NLC, the directive was based on Section 159 of Act 651, as the declaration of the strike was deemed non-compliant with the law.

The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT) have been on strike since March 20, 2024.

The unions declared the strike over what they claimed was the government’s negligence in addressing their conditions of service.

However, a High Court has restrained the teachers from continuing their strike.

“It is hereby ordered that the Respondents herein, whether by itself, its Executives, Officers, Members, Agents, Employees or other persons are restrained from further continuation of their strike action of March 20 2024,” the court said.

Earlier, the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) had asked the teachers to call off the industrial action and return to the negotiation table for a conclusive engagement.

Meanwhile, the government has addressed three of their concerns, including the full distribution of laptops to all teachers by the end of June and presenting a draft of the scheme of service to the unions for review by April 8.

Below is the order of interim injunction.
