The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), has warned that any excuse by Government to delay the implementation of the Single Spine Pay Policy (SSPP) would result in industrial action.

This was contained in a communiqué issued by the Upper East Regional Chairman of GNAT, Mr. Stephen Gebute and the Regional Secretary, Mr. Linus Coffie Attey at the end of an emergency Regional Council Meeting held in Bolgatanga on Wednesday.

The Communiqué called on government and the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission to meet the various labour groups that have outstanding issues regarding to job evaluation, base pay, relative ration and placement among others things to pave way for test running of the structure for implementation.

“With the signing of the Collective Agreement on the 31st December 2009,the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission, Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service, should endorse the roadmap for further implementation as presented by the unions as a working document”, it said.

The communiqué called on government and the education authorities as a matter of urgency to provide the needed infrastructure to accommodate the more than 140,000 students who are due to enter Senior High School in September particularly in the region.

It appealed to government to expedite action on the payment of professional allowances to all certificated teachers, allowances for Science, Mathematics, Information, Communication and Technology, Technical and Vocational Teachers and the various categories of allowances as specified in the Collective Agreement.
