The Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations has referred the impasse between the government and the striking unions to the National Labour Commission.
This comes after a second meeting between the parties involved on Monday to find a common ground ended in a stalemate. This has compelled the Ministry to run to the NLC.
The teacher unions declared a sit-down strike on November 4, in protest of the appointment of Dr. Eric Nkansah as the Director-General of the Ghana Education Service.
They believe Dr. Nkansah does not have a satisfactory teaching background.
They also insist Dr. Nkansah is not an educationist but rather a banker.
The three unions on strike are the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) and Coalition of Concerned Teachers, Ghana (CCT) have been on strike since November 4, 2022.
The strike has generally disrupted academic work at pre-tertiary institutions.
Already some government officials have spoken against the strike action.
For instance, Deputy Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo-Markin has said that the strike action is unfair.
According to him, Dr. Eric Nkansah does not deserve that at the beginning of his tenure.
He, therefore, implored the striking teachers to return to work.
