Three teacher unions call off strike

Three pre-tertiary teacher unions have called off their two-week-old strike, which they initiated nationwide on March 20, 2024, citing the government’s failure to address their conditions of service.

The decision to end the strike follows the National Labour Commission (NLC) obtaining an interim injunction to halt the industrial action, thereby facilitating the commencement of negotiations.

“We continue to ask the employer led by the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations to commence negotiations this afternoon, today April 2 2024. So we can expedite the negotiations and come to a conclusion to forestall any other happenings in the future,” he stated.
