NLC Orders Teacher Unions to Call Off Strike

The National Labour Commission (NLC) has issued a directive to three prominent teacher unions in Ghana, namely the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT), to immediately halt their nationwide strike action.

The order, signed by Justice Kwabena Asuman-Adu, Chairperson of the NLC, was issued in accordance with Section 133 (1) of the Labour Act, 2003 (Act 651). It cites non-compliance with Section 159 of Act 651 as the basis for the directive.

The decision to call off the strike comes after the aforementioned teacher unions declared a nationwide strike on Wednesday, March 20th, 2024, which was subsequently announced across various media platforms in the country.

While the specific reasons behind the strike declaration were not explicitly mentioned in the directive, it underscores the necessity for adherence to legal procedures outlined in the Labour Act.

“In light of the NLC’s order, GNAT, NAGRAT, and CCT are expected to comply accordingly.”
