Sunyani, July 28, GNA
– The Ghana Education Service (GES) has set-up an investigative committee to probe
into alleged forgery of documents and certificates by some employees.

Mr Augustine Karbo,
the General Secretary of the Teachers and Educational Workers Union (TEWU) who
announced this warned that the Union would not tolerate wrongdoings.

He was addressing
members of the Brong-Ahafo Regional branch of the Union at a meeting in
Sunyani, which offered opportunity for the members to interact with the
national executives on certain developments and the current state of the Union.

Mr Karbo said it was a
serious offence for public sector employees to forge documents for promotion,
but instead challenged the members of the Union to upgrade themselves to be
able to meet the demands of employers and increased productivity at their work
places.

He noted that many
employees in the formal sector were going through what he described as “modern
form of slavery” in work places, adding that should it not be a justification
for employees to forge documents.

Mr Karbo entreated
members of the Union to concentrate on their jobs, work hard and improve on
productivity, as the national executives tackled their problems.

He observed that the
surest way to improve on productivity at work places was for the members to
upgrade themselves and work hard for good outcomes.

He told the members of
the union that the 20 per cent deduction from their monthly salaries were being
used to champion the course of the union for their own good, explaining that it
was part of their contributions that are being used to pay salaries of union
executives.

Mr Karbo reminded them
that last year the Union was able to negotiate for 12.5 per cent increment for
members, indicating that the Union fought a lot for the additional 11 per cent
salary increase effective January 2018.

He advised members of
the union to bury their differences and forged ahead in unity so that with the
spirit of togetherness they could fight a common cause for improved conditions
of service and good welfare.

Mr Peter Lumor, the
National President of TEWU, advised the members not to look down on each other,
saying in TEWU and unionism every job description is very essential for
progress.

He later sworn into
office Mr Daniel Ayarna, as the new Regional Chairman of the Union.
