The three pre-tertiary Teacher unions have called off their strike after the National Labour Commission (NLC) secured an injunction against them.

The three teacher unions laid down their tools on March 20, 2024 demanding improved working conditions.

However, following an interim injunction obtained by the National Labour Commission (NLC), they have called off all action.

These unions include the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT).

In a statement issued today [Tuesday, April 2, 2024], the President of the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, Ghana, King Ali Awudu, intimated the importance for their employers to swiftly address their concerns of the unions.

"As law abiding citizens and having respect for the court, we hereby declare the strike that was called on 20th March 2024 off. We ask all our members and teachers of pre-tertiary education in this country to resume work with immediate effect,” he said.

"We continue to ask the employer led by the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations to commence negotiations this afternoon, today April 2 2024. So we can expedite the negotiations and come to a conclusion to forestall any other happenings in the future," he added.
