NOTU Warns Government to Go Slow On Striking Teachers

By Shadrach Bethel,

Trade unions under the umbrella body of the National Organisation of Trade Unions (NOTU) have threatened to lay down their tools and join the striking teachers if government does not withdraw the letter written to teachers instructing them to go back to class before June 24.

Yesterday the permanent secretary in the ministry of Public Service wrote a letter giving teachers up to 24th of this month to report to their duty station without fail or else they will be regarded as having abandoned duty or resigned.

Usher Wilson Owere the NOTU Chairman General said they will individually deal with Chief Administration Officers and town clerks who are threatening the striking teachers especially in the upcountry areas.

UNATU says they are ready to offer legal services in case any striking teacher needs them, and called upon them to maintain their stand.
