The three teacher unions that are on strike in protest of Dr. Eric Nkansah’s selection as the next director-general of the Ghana Education Service are being supported by the Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG) (GES).
Similar appointments in the Civil Service and the Local Government Service, according to CLOGSAG, are not conducive to industrial peace.
As an illustration, it used the appointment of the Registrar at the Births and Deaths Registry.
In order to promote industrial peace, CLOGSAG has encouraged the government to pay attention to the teacher unions.
The nomination of public servants under the president’s authority shall follow the guidance provided by the relevant service’s governing council in collaboration with the Public Services Commission, according to CLOGSAG.
The three unions are the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, Ghana, the Ghana National Association of Teachers, and the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) (CCT).
Since November 4 of 2022, they have been on strike.
They have been urged to end their strike and communicate with their employers by the National Labour Commission.
