Mr Knabayi said the emergency meeting was to review the level of compliance and commitment of the Council Chairmen to the agreement with the union which led to the suspension of the industrial action on Dec. 1, 2021.

The teachers had in December embarked on an indefinite strike, which was suspended after a week, following an emergency meeting of the State Wing Executive Council.

According to the chairman, the teachers are no longer ready to be taken for granted until their demands are met by the relevant authorities in the FCT.
