The largest teacher union in Ghana sent a strong signal to the Ghana Education Service that any attempt to get certain category of Staff to pay rent will be resisted fiercely. The association was reacting to a circular signed by Mrs. Felicia Agyeibea Okai (Western Regional Director of Education) informing all Teachers/Staff occupying School/Government bungalow(s), that effective from 1st March 2022, they are to pay 10% of their basic salary as rent.

The GNAT believes this directive is unfair Labour practice and a breach of union trust since such a directive is against the spirit and letter of the Collective Agreement as enacted in August 2020.  Read the full statement below:
