3000 teachers to strike over unpaid salaries

3000 teachers to strike over unpaid salaries

The Coalition of Unpaid Teachers says it will embark on a demonstration if the government does not pay its members their salaries.

The groups said its members have not received their accumulated salaries since they began teaching in 2012.

The 3000 teachers who reportedly make up the group are said to have decided on a demonstration after numerous fruitless attempts to get the government to pay the salaries.

The president of the group, Eric Darko Effah, said the head of the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission had assured them that the money would be paid, but that had not been done.

“We were promised by Smith Graham that we were going to be paid in two trenches… we would be paid in June and July but up till now, even we have not received our staff ID,” he said.
