It’s Heartless, Disrespectful to Ask UTAG, CETAG to Return To Classrooms – Educationist



Educationist, Mr Ekow Djan has opposed calls for members of the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) and the Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) to return to the classroom following their strike.

Mr Djan indicated that the members of these associations have had to endure severe hardships for years owing to the failure of the government to meet their demands.

He said the issues of the associations must be resolved to enable them return to the classrooms.

“It is heartless and disrespectful to ask UTAG and CETAG to return to the classroom. They have lived with the delay/non-payment of Book & Research allowances and Market Premium for years. Government must pay absolute attention to their challenges.

“The Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) and the National Labour Commission (NLC) must be bold to compel govt address these challenges once and for all.

“Nonpayment of responsibility allowances, market premiums, book & research allowances, trainee teachers allowances, failure to pay upgraded teachers their rightful salaries, 4 & 7 percent salary increments etc. are enough grounds to say President Akufo-Addo least respects Ghanaian teachers.

“The constant disrespect to Teachers by President Akufo-Addo and his government is heart wrenching and teacher unions (UTAG, CETAG, TUTAG, GNAT, NAGRAT, CCT, TTAG) must fiercely resist it,” he said in a statement.

 CETAG members suspended teaching service starting last Thursday January 6.

The National Council entreated all of its members to comply with this directive.

This action came on the heels of, among other things, “The failure by the government to implement the 2017-2020conditiosn of service as agreed,” a statement said.
