The National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) has threatened to embark on a strike on September 30, 2015.

This follows government's failure to pay them their annual incremental allowances in the last three years.

According to the teachers, they had an agreement with government that they will receive an increment in their salaries every year, but this has not been done.

Addressing a news conference earlier today in Accra, NAGRAT said government has ignored issues concerning their conditions of service despite countless promptings.

Greater Accra Regional Chairman of NAGRAT, Senyo Kwamikorkor has therefore said the teachers will go on strike on September 30, 2015 if government does not act.

“Government of the day does not want to respect this profession and it is very bad for people to work for several months without being paid”, he said.

The teachers have also questioned why they have not been paid their transport allowances, especially for teachers in remote areas.

Mr. Senyo Kwamikorkor has therefore called on teachers across the country to prepare for the strike so that government will be put on its toes to act quickly.
