Accra, Jan 31, GNA - The Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) on Thursday suspended its week-long sit- down strike action.
The one week strike action was in protest against poor conditions of service.
In an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) on Thursday, Mr Godwin Nomo Tetteh, CETAG Treasurer, said following a meeting held on Tuesday by the National Council, the association decided to suspend its strike action.
śHowever, CETAG would still withdraws its services of marking exams papers as well as invigilating students in their ongoing examsť, he said.
Mr Nomo Tetteh called on government and other stakeholders to as a matter of urgency address the plight of CETAG members, as the situation was retarding the progress of education in the country.
śThe poor service condition can influence some of the teachers™ to move from their field to other sectors where conditions are good and motivatingť, he added.
When the GNA visited the Accra college of Education, it noticed that exams was in session but the lecturers were not invigilating.
