The various teachers union of Ghana embarked on strike demanding better condition of service from government. The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), National Gr Association of Graduate Teachers(NAGRAT), Teacher and Education Workers Union(TEWU) and Coalition of Concerned Teachers(CCT) have laid down their tools following their demands of 20% cost of living allowance.

The teachers say cost of living has annoyingly risen making life unbearable, hence a demand of 20% cost of living allowance to cushion them pending salary increase.

The Ghana Education Service through its Public Relations Unit have told the various schools to still open and organise and protect the students pending further directives even though the teachers and non-teaching staff are not working.

 The Ghana TVET Service teachers and non-teaching staff are not part of the industrial strike actions which means teaching and learning will go on as usual according to the Press release by the management of Ghana TVET Service.
