Teachers' unions satisfied with negotiations with Labour Commission

The National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT) have expressed satisfaction – for now – with the ongoing negotiations to address their concerns.
The teachers’ unions were up in arms against government for failing to pay their allowances and salaries in arrears. They also want bottlenecks with their second tier pension scheme resolved.
After a spirited national demonstration in Kumasi last week, the teachers called off their strike to allow for negotiations with the National Labor Commission (NLC).
The NLC has called for a meeting involving the Commission, the teacher’s union leaders and relevant government agencies and ministries on Wednesday.
Speaking to Ultimate Radio after the meetings, national president of the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, Ernest Opoku, said: “The meeting went on “successfully” with all parties present for the fruitful discussion.”
He added, however, that several issues could not be concluded and have been rescheduled for next week.
