Teachers salaries are bleeding again

Ghana Education News Update for Teachers: TEACHERS’ SALARY BLEEDING AGAIN.

Teaching is the most vulnerable profession in Ghana. And it is the only profession where the employer decides to deduct any money at all from employees’ salaries without proper consent.

The teacher unions: GNAT, NAGRAT, and CCT now serve as decoys and conduits for GES to make money from vulnerable teachers. Always, GES will come out to say the Unions agree. Everything, the unions agreed.

I want to know from GNAT, NAGRAT, and CCT, apart from agreeing on bogus laptops, what else did they agree on again. Did they agree that NTC should deduct ¢100 from our salaries and for what? These are questions that teacher unions must open up on so that teachers and members of the various unions know exactly what is happening.
