NUGS begs striking teachers

The National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) has voiced its opposition to the country’s pre-tertiary teacher unions’ ongoing strike.

The student body claims that if the striking teachers maintain their steadfast stance during negotiations with the government, academic activities will be severely hampered.

While the teachers may have a valid reason for their actions, NUGS is pleading with them to act in good faith and keep students’ welfare in mind during all conversations aimed at resolving their issues.

“We will also like to call on our dear teachers not to have a non-negotiable position in this matter, given the adverse effect of a protracted strike action on academic life. We are not oblivious of global challenges that have adversely impacted many nations.

“However, our paramount priority remains the protection of the interest of the Ghanaian student. All parties are, therefore, advised to put equity, reasonability and nationalism first,” the Union said in a statement on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, it has called on government to expeditiously engage with the labour unions to avert further disruptions in the academic work in schools.

“In this regard, we expect government to embark on all necessary managerial steps intended to amicably resolve this impasse. The creation and maintenance of an enabling environment which engenders productivity and protects the welfare of the labour front remain the responsibility government, particularly in the education sector.
