CETAG begins indefinite strike

on .

StrikeMembers of the College of Education Teachers’ Association of Ghana (CETAG) have begun a strike action that will see them not invigilating examinations of colleges, and marking of scripts.

According to the Association, their strike has been instanced by the indifference of the Ministry of Education to follow a roadmap adopted last year.

Last month, CETAG issued a communiqué asking government to show urgency in implementing the Colleges of Education Act, 2012, Act 847, passed by Parliament and duly accented by late President John Evans Atta Mills.

Our Ashanti Region correspondent reported on 7GMT on Monday, July 1, 2013 that the strike has affected most students at the Wesley College of Education in Kumasi.

William Evans Nkum explained that examinations have stalled as students are confused over the next decision to take.

For two weeks now the teachers have not been to class, a student by name Frank said.

If government wants to see a brighter future, something has to be done, Frank advised.

Speaking to William Evans Nkum, Nkyi Asamoah, the National President of CETAG, said the negotiation process started “a long time ago”.

“Several attempts have been made but all have been unsuccessful,” he lamented.

Mr Nkyi said the Association will meet and decide on the next line of action if government does not fulfil their demands.
