Some Ghanaian teachers have always suspected their union leaders for being in bed with the government of the day all the time. Leaders of unions like NAGRAT, CONCERN, GNAT and the rest have always had to explain their actions in meetings and dialogues with the Labour Commission, Education Ministry, officials of Ghana Education Service (GES) and other established institutions.
In response to this, the Education Minister, Mr. Yaw Adutwum, has indicated how he’s obsessed with working around the clock to receive the grievances of teachers all the time.
Education Minister indicated that “The Ministry and the GEareis setting up a special teacher’s portal for them to register their grievances on the platform. We will assign case managers who will handle the issues to make sure that the complaints are resolved.
“When they are resolved, there will be a dashboard for me to know that there was for instance a reduction of 20,000 complaints from Ashanti or other regions. I want to remove the impediments of teachers and improve their welfare issues to do their job well”, he said
