The Deputy National General Secretary of the Ghana National Association of Teachers, (GNAT ) , Mr Awortwe Nkansah has advised teachers not to compare their salaries with those in other sectors.
Mr Nkansah said teachers had a lot of existing remunerations and allowances which could be improved by the government to enhance their conditions of service.
He made this know at an emergency Regional Council meeting , held at Bolgatanga , to collate views from teachers and to strategize to on how to get their wages improved. “You should not single out some professionals in the public sector to make comparisons to in relation to salaries and allowances for that might not give the true picture of the reality, ” he said .
He said the recent demands and agitations by teachers to remove its leadership following the migration of teachers to the Single Spine Salary Structure ( SSSS ) were politically motivated.
Mr Nkansah called on teachers not to use actions such as strikes to drive home their concerns but to ensure that peace , justice, harmony and stability prevailed among teachers as GNAT was doing all it could to fight for them.
