The National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) organized a press conference which was addressed by president of the association, Eric Agbe-Carbonu on Unaddressed Concerns of Teachers, on Wednesday 31st July, 2019 at the NAGRAT Headquarters in Accra.
Among other things, the President, on behalf the Association emphasized on Non-Payment of Salary Arrears to Teachers by the government, despite promises and assurance with have yield no fruit.
According to Mr. Agbe-Carbonu, Salary Arrears resulting from the infamous Three Months Payment Policy of 2013 is still creating a lot of disputes among teachers. Even though a major promise of this government was to pay salary arrears on its first year, that promise has turned into a mirage. Many teachers owed arrears were hopeful that they would be paid by the end of March, 2019 as promised by the President of the Republic. While acknowledging that some payments were made in April of 2019, most of the arrears are still unpaid.
“We are anxious to know when we will receive our salary arrears. We want the Ministries of Finance and Labor and Employment Relations to come clear on the exact time such teachers will be paid their arrears” he said.
