NUGS COMMENDS CETAG,GOVERNMENT ON RECONCILIATORY ROADMAP TO ADDRESS UNPAID ALLOWANCES
The National Union of Ghana Students is enthused about the actions taken by the Government and the College of Education Teachers Association (CETAG) over issues with allowances that led to a month’s closure of all the Colleges of Education in the country.
Late last year, the Union was hit by the sudden closure of the Colleges of Education due to the non-payment of CETAG’s Interim Market Premium and Book and Research allowance.
The Union is happy that these issues have been resolved by both parties and that moving forward industrial action involving allowances will be a thing of the past.
Our students in the Colleges of Education ought to have tranquility and ample time for their studies.
NUGS calls on Government to exercise full commitment to this agreement and that the Union will not countenance any disappointment on the part of the Government.
We call on CETAG to also honor their part of the negotiations.
We further call on the students of the Colleges of Education to also exhibit good morals and take their studies serious to help build their future to be able to help mother Ghana in the future.
