Members of the Colleges of Education Tutors Association of Ghana (CETAG) are smiling to the bank as government has finally paid all arrears owed them in relation to their book and research allowance.

The amount which according to sources available to this portal hit their accounts on November 15, 2019, is for the 2018/2019 academic year.

The release of funds for the payment of the book and research allowance follows months of agitations from the CETAG.

The delay in the payment of the book and research allowance to CETAG members across the country by government led to an uneasy calm in all 46 public Colleges of Education in the country.

The agitations eventually forced the hand of government to agree on a possible roadmap with the College of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) to resolve the grievances of the teacher association.

Per the roadmap, government in January this year signed an undertaking to pay CETAG, the allowances in September 2019.

Last year, members of CETAG embarked on a one-month strike that led to the closure of Colleges of Education, due to the non-payment of their Interim Market Premium and Book and Research allowance.

Meanwhile, per the roadmap, an agreed market premium with arrears will be paid between January and April 2020.
