Now May 2021 is on the verge of ending and nothing has been said about the minimum wage negotiations neither of increasing workers’ salaries. Teachers want to know whether the Coalition of Concern Teachers Ghana (CCTG) still has in mind the Ultimatum they gave to the government concerning these negotiations or it was just a vague hope the teacher unions always try to give to their members.

It seems most of the Teacher unions now talk more than they do. Teachers have to be alert to always remind their leaders about the promise that they make.

It is high time teacher union leaders accounted to their members at the end of every year.
In April this year, the three main teacher unions GNAT, NAGRAT, and CCTGH also gave Government Ultimatum to upgrade and pay the responsibility allowance of Teachers before the end of April 2021.

The members of the various teacher unions have to remind their leaders about the industrial action they gave to the government. Teachers have been cheated for too long.
