Management of Ghana Education Service (GES) has read with disbelief some statements on the above subject-matter attributed to the General Secretary of Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), Mr. Thomas Musah.
It is of the view of management of Ghana Education Service that, the statement ” it said so far no teacher has been paid the legacy arrears….” is not true and could not have been put out by the Secretary of GNAT.
The legacy arrears span the period of 2020 to 2016 when staff of GES who were due remuneration of over three(3) months were paid only three (3) months’ salary and asked to justify why they were due for the rest.
The facts show that, out of a total of 97,791 applications received for final audit for legacy arrears. 83,763 were validated as being owed and have all been paid in full.
This represents a 100% payment of all validated claims.
The parties, made up of the Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Employment & Labour Relations, Controller & Accountant-General’s Department, the Audit Service, Ministry of Education, Ghana Education Service and the various Unions in the pre-tertiary education space, namely GNAT, NAGRAT, CCT-GH & TEWU, met with H.E President on the subject in February 2020.
At that meeting, H.E the President directed that, the various factions should reconcile the figures to facilitate the payments, if any.
The GES received the data of the 14,028 personnel being the outstanding figure from the total applications received from the Controller & Accountant-General’s Department.
Management of GES contends that only 2,558 out of the 14,028 have so far not been paid and has subsequently been sent to Controller & Accountant-General’s Department to be processed for payment and the Unions have been duly informed.
