UTAG Stages Industrial Action On Friday

The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) in a news release has instructed members to resume their suspended strike on Friday, October 8, 2021, over bad conditions of service.
“Following the signing of the Memorandum of Agreement with the Employer to complete the negotiations on the Conditions of Service of University Teachers within one (1) month by resolving all outstanding issues, which formed the basis for suspending the strike, it is sad to report that the one-month moratorium has elapsed and the negotiation has almost reached a stalemate.”
UTAG stated that “It’s Unfortunate that within the one-month moratorium, the Employer never shifted its position even though UTAG made a number of concessions.”
For this reason, the National Executive Committee of UTAG at its meeting held on October 1, 2021, resolved that if the Employer’s position remains unchanged by Friday, 8th of October 2021, members should resume the suspension of teaching and related activities until further notice.”
UTAG is advising members to observe the directive and act accordingly.
