Address grievances of CETAG members – Austin Gamey tells government

A labour expert, Austin Gamey, says the strike by the leadership of Colleges of Education Teachers Association (CETAG) is legal.

Speaking exclusively to our labour correspondent, Daniel Opoku, he called on the employer to implement the ruling of the National Labour Commission to address the grievances of the striking CETAG members.

The labour expert was concerned about the decision by the employer not to abide by the directive of the Labour Commission.

“The workers are tired, and this is the time that you can describe a strike as a legal strike. We expect the Commission to either go for enforcement or direct the employer to implement the award that has been given,” he said.

He discounted claims that CETAG has taken an entrenched position on their demands.

“As far as I know, CETAG has not taken an entrenched position, CETAG patiently went through the process of engaging their employer to negotiate their conditions of service, they ended up in Labour Commission and they conducted compulsory arbitration with the employer to ensure that the order given by no less a Commission will have to be implemented,” he said.

The President of Principals of Colleges of Education, Professor Atintono was sad about the impact of the strike on academic work.

“Just one week that we have re-opened, lectures are not going on, but the students are doing their independent studies.”
