CETAG, CENTSAG strike over conditions of service


The Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) and the Colleges of Education Non-Teaching Staff Association of Ghana (CENTSAG) have begun an indefinite strike in all the 46 colleges of education across the country over government’s failure to prioritize their welfare.

The groups said they are disappointed at non-finalisation of Conditions of Service (CoS) negotiations, unilateral determination of April 2023 by the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) as effective date for placing First Degree Holders of CENTSAG on 17H on the SSSS, undue delay by the Ministry of Education in responding to requests for payment of compensation among others.

They gave the government a five-day ultimatum last Monday to address their concerns or they strike.

Following the expiration of the deadline, CETAG and CENTSAG have declared a strike effective today, Monday 14 November 2022 until their demands are met.
