Following a meeting with the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission and Vice Chancellors of Ghana, the Teacher and Educational Workers Union (TEWU) has called off its strike. The strike was to demand the resolution of wide inequalities between the salaries of Senior and junior staff. However, after the National Labour Commission (NLC) declared the strike illegal and threatened to withdraw the salaries of TEWU members, the union had to choice but to return to work. Confirming the new development, National Chairman of TEWU,  Peter Lumor said

We had to call off the strike because Fair Wages was not responding to VCG’s letter, they were not responding to concerns for us to sit and negotiate. Fair Wages called us on Thursday and we started talking but Human Resources Directors were not there so the meeting came to an end.

So based on that we asked our workers to resume work while we continue negotiations with Fair Wages on Thursday

This means the union is going back to the negotiation table with the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC).
Students who were home because of the strike action are therefore expected to go back to school.
