The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), has expressed dissatisfaction with the manner in which the Ghana Education Service (GES) is transferring teachers without their transfer grants.
The Association said it continues to receive complaints from teachers that they were being compelled to fill a "weaver of T and T" form to go on transfer, while they had not made any request to be transferred.
The situation GNAT viewed as a blatant violation of the collective agreement and the regulations governing transfers, adding that "transfers must be done with all humility and fairness".
William Abedi Boadu, Central Regional Secretary of GNAT, who expressed these sentiments in an interview with the Ghana News Agency, advised that in the expected transfers, GES should ensure that funds are secured to pay the legitimate entitlements of the affected teachers to bring about a smooth exercise.
Boadu said GNAT had received summon letters from lawyers of affected teachers, stating that the transfers of their clients were not done in good faith, describing the trend as "worrying".
