TEWU Threatens Strike Over Unpaid Allowances
The Teachers and Education Workers Union (TEWU) says it will embark on a strike action if the government refuses to settle its unpaid allowances by the end of June.
The call for government intervention by TEWU comes after members of the National Association of Graduate Teachers threatened to bring their services to a halt if the government fails to alleviate their plight.
in a statement, the General Secretary of TEWU, Mark Korankye, final year students of Senior High Schools will bear the pressure of their next line of action if the government does not regard their action.
“The leadership of TEWU of TUC Ghana wants to put it on record that, it has made frantic appeals to the government that the skyrocketing prices of goods and services, call for the authorities to workers to enable them to cope with the worsening economic condition”.
“Unfortunately, these appeals have received a positive response. We have resolved that by the end of the month if no response is heard from the government, members of the teachers and education workers will have no option than to advise our members to lay down their tools until allowances hit their account”.
