Dismissals for participating in strike action
In Ghana, representatives of the Teachers and Educational Workers’ Union accused the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS) of attempting to intimidate teachers to force them back to work, despite an ongoing strike that began on 4 July 2022 over the cost-of-living allowance. Some teachers and non-teaching staff were being forced to remain at work by CHASS while other members were on strike. The union representatives called upon the Ghana Education Service in a press release on 8 July to order CHASS to cease its intimidation efforts.
The strike was eventually called off on 15 July, after the government agreed to pay a 15 per cent cost-of-living allowance.
