The leadership of Teacher Unions has called on the Public Service Commission to suspend the implementation of the Human Resource Management Information System (HRMIS) software for GES employees.
The General Secretary of the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), Mr David Ofori Acheampong, addressing a press conference in Accra, hinted the association’s readiness to picket at the premises of the Commission by Friday, September 20, if government does not stop the implementation of the Human Resource Management Information System (HRMIS) software for GES employees.
According to them, the system as designed in its present form was not compatible with the scheme of services in GES and would, therefore, have adverse challenges.
The press conference organized by the Coalition of Concerned Teachers Ghana and the Teachers Education Workers Union, urged Management of the Commission to drop the software used to process the information.
The General Secretary of GNAT, Mr David Ofori
said the teacher Unions had raised concerns of the software earlier in July this year, and the Government had directed the Commission to suspend the project to enable GES to input promotions and upgrading, as well as update employees’ records with respect to transfers and change of management unit numbers on the payroll.
