Teacher Get Gh¢10 Pay

MEMBERS OF the Ghana National Association
of Teachers (GNAT) in the Ejisu-Juaben
Municipality of the Ashanti Region have
expressed worry at the frequent inconsistent
reductions in their salaries in recent times.

About 60 per cent of the 2000 GNAT
members in the municipality are said to have
been affected by the situation with some of
them receiving as low as GH¢10 as a monthly

Agyen Frimpong, Ejisu-Juaben District
secretary of GNAT in a statement said a
number of the affected teachers have, in the
past three months, had their salaries illegally
slashed after going to their banks.

He, however, failed to release the names of
the affected teachers but stressed that they
had communicated their concerns to the
appropriate stakeholders for immediate

“All these problems have been reported to
the Ghana Education Service in the
Municipality and the Region…and in all cases
we are advised to wait for the pay slips so
they can be sure of how the complaint can
be addressed,” Frimpong said.

According to him, since the introduction and
implementation of the Single Spine Salary
Structure policy, no teacher could tell exactly
how much they earned at the end of the
month as a teacher’s pay differed from
month to month.

The municipal GNAT secretary described as
most disgusting and irritating, the situation
where most teachers in the area received
their pay slips very late and at times did not
receive them at all.
“As we speak, pay slips for August,
September and October, this year, have not
been received,” Frimpong said in the

He appealed to the government to, as a
matter of urgency, investigate the devastating
situation and find lasting solutions to it to
help calm down nerves.

The GNAT appealed to the Controller and
Accountant General’s Department to privatise
the printing and distribution of the pay slips
if they could not overcome their alleged
perennial technical problems.

According to the teachers, the release of the
pay slips would help them to be sure of how
much they would take before they go to their
banks at the end of the month.
