The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) has joined its fellow teacher group, National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) in its industrial action against what they describe as unfavorable working conditions.
In a press release issued by the association, six out of the ten regional branches of the Association are confirmed to embark on industrial action following the inability of their employer, the Ghana Education Service (GES) to resolve the many challenges confronting its members.
The six GNAT regions to embark on the industrial action are Northern, Upper East, Upper West, Volta, Central and the Greater Accra.
NAGRAT declared a nationwide strike over the newly introduced Human Resource Management Information System (HRMIS) acquired by the Public Services Commission, unpaid allowances and delayed promotions among others.
NAGRAT President, Angel Carbonu says while the association is yet to meet the Ghana Education Service (GES), there is scheduled meeting with the National Labour Commission on Wednesday over the impasse.
NAGRAT and GNAT will begin their strike action today, Tuesday, September 10, 2019.
GNAT said it had been inundated with calls and agitations from its members across the regions for the strike action and the Association is no longer able to control them.
