NPP calls on government to exercise good faith in negotiations with teachers

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) on Friday called on the Government to exercise good faith in the negotiations with teachers, to reach an agreement over their allowances, and show more care in the migration onto the Single Spine Salary Structure (SSSS).

In addition, Government should implement the migration onto the SSSS in a holistic manner by securing the buy-in of all public sector employees before the implementation so that the nation could be spared the current situation with the teachers.

“Implementation of the Single Spine should not be rationed,” it said in a statement signed by Nana Akomea, Director of Communications in Accra.

However, the NPP called on teachers to exercise restraint so that the innocent school children were not deprived of teaching and learning through no fault of theirs.

The party expressed great concern about the continuing mass demonstration, agitation, and strikes by teachers all over the country and was in solidarity with the teachers over their plight.

“The NDC Government has been grossly unfair and shown very bad faith to teachers over their migration onto the Single Spine Salary Structure.

“This is shocking because of the numerous promises made by the NDC to teachers before and after it came into government,” the statement said.
