School teachers strike in Ghana over pay

Primary and secondary school teachers across Ghana say they’re embarking on a strike because their cost of living allowances aren’t being paid.

They say the allowance, which is 20% of their basic salary, is essential to cushion them from biting economic hardship.

Inflation is at its highest level in 18 years, and the mineral-rich West African country may soon have to borrow more money to pay public sector workers.

A team from the IMF is expected in Ghana this week to begin talks with the government on a bail-out package.

The teaching strike declared on Monday will be observed by non-teaching staff too.

It comes after Ghana’s government failed to meet a 30 June deadline set by union leaders during the course of negotiations.
