The Coalition of Concerned Teachers Ghana was born out of the spontaneous reaction that occurred during the implementation of the Single Spine Salary Structure (SSSS) which teachers were shortchanged. As a result Teachers all over the country embarked on nationwide demonstrations and industrial action with each group using the name Concern without the support from any Union or politicalparty. This made Government to open fresh negotiations for
Teachers. In the process, government decided to introduce an allowance for teachers called ‘Retention Premium’ (15% of the basic pay). The aggrieved teachers decided to form a new Union when thirty-one (31) of the leaders were sacked from GNAT and NAGRAT. The Union became COALITION OF CONCERNED TEACHERS GHANA (CCT-GH) with her motto: ‘QUALITY EDUCATION! OUR CONCERN ‘and Slogan; Concern! Resolute!!
