Collective Agreement Review 2023 For Teachers | More Allowances?
The three major teacher unions in the country, Ghana, have given notice to the employer about the need to start the processes towards their collective agreement review regarding their employment. The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, Ghana (CCT-GH) wrote to the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) on the 20th January 2023 regarding the review.
The last time the collective agreement was reviewed, it resulted in the introduction of an allowance to teachers called Continues Professional Development Allowance (CPD allowance). It is yet to be known which other allowance could be introduced to aid the work of the teacher.
Below is the details of the letter
REVIEW OF THE COLLECTIVE AGREEMENT FOR TEACHING STAFF WITHIN THE GHANA EDUCATION SERVICE (GES)
Pursuant to section 41.1 of the Collective Agreement for Teaching Staff within the Ghana Education Service (GES) document which came into effect August, 2020 and stipulates that:
There shall be general reviewing of this Collective Agreement after every three (3) years We the Teacher Unions-i.e.. the Ghana National Association of Teachers, GNAT, the National
Association of Graduate Teachers, NAGRAT, and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, Ghana, CCT-Gh, write to draw your attention that the said Collective Agreement document will run its scheduled three-year (3-year) span in August 2023, and therefore needs to be reviewed.
We would therefore be grateful if you would set the necessary machinery in motion so that we meet to undertake the said review, as soon as possible.
We look forward to your usual prompt response and cooperation.
