NAGRAT declares strike
The National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) has declared a strike over what they have termed as hardship.
NAGRAT says the hardship has been brought on to them by the newly introduced human resource management information system. (HRMIS).
NAGRAT President, Angel Carbonu, indicated that the HRMIS acquired by the Public Services Commission, has created a lot of setbacks for teachers, which is affecting their work.
He bemoaned outstanding salary arrears, delays in promotion, additional responsibility allowance, delays in receiving promotion letters and the inability to seek transfer, saying there are some of the challenges affecting teachers.
According to Mr. Carbonu, the system procured by the Public Services Commission, is incompatible with the scheme of services of the Ghana Education Service (GES).
He called on all teachers to stay out of their schools until further notice.
