The leadership of the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) has indicated that the Association will not appear before the National Labour Commission (NLC) over the ongoing strike, ABC News can report.

According to the leadership of NAGRAT, the NLC has failed to formally invite them for talks using the stipulated processes thus their decision to boycott the ‘invitation’.

Last week, NAGRAT declared an indefinite nationwide strike to push for the payment of their salary arrears and delayed promotions.

Following their strike, NLC ordered NAGRAT to appear before it on Wednesday, September 11 or face contempt of Court.

But in an interview, President of NAGRAT, Angel Carbonu stated that the Association will not appear before the Commission because they have not received any official invitation from NLC.

“As far as I am concerned, I do not have any formal invitation.”

According to him, the National Labour Commission must follow the right procedures of inviting them over to discuss issues relating to their strike.

“I have just heard that the Executive Secretary of the Labour Commission was passing judgment on the matter. I don’t think he is cloak with that authority on an issue that is not officially before them” ABC News can report the NAGRAT President Angel Carbonu said.

“In any case, he is an employee of the Labour Commission, not the Commissioner so he cannot be passing judgment and at the same time purporting to be calling on people to come and appear before them on radio. We called for the strike over some issues and as we speak, the issues have not been resolved” he intimated.
