All Teachers Alliance Ghana (ATAG) is planning on embarking on a demonstration on December 15, to express their displeasure against deductions made on teacher salaries over laptops to be given to all teachers in the country.
According to the Union, the deductions are being made during a legal battle between teachers and policy makers to terminate the policy implementation.
General Secretary of All Teachers Alliance Ghana, Albert Dadson Amoah, in an interview on Accra-based Citi News said “they [GES] should prepare for us. Teachers are minimizing themselves. We want to use this forum to call on GES once again to immediately refund the GH₵ 509 to teachers.”
“Besides, there are some GES workers who are not teachers, there are the cleaners, cooks, among others. Some earn as little as GH₵ 700 and the government has gone ahead to deduct GH₵ 509 from their salaries. How are these people expected to survive?”
The demonstrations and strikes seem to be coming thick and fast and it would appear the Government is beginning to get overwhelmed by events happening in the country. Commercial drivers have embarked on an indefinite strike today in protest of increasing fuel prices
