UTAG won’t call off strike despite court order

The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) says its members will not return to work despite an injunction sought by the National Labour Commission against their industrial action.

In a statement released by the national body of the Association on August 8, 2021, National Secretary Dr K. K. Abavare indicated that UTAG has received resolutions from all 13 member public institutions mandating the continuation of the strike action.

“Following the stalling of negotiations with the government on our Conditions of Service (CoS), which culminated in our declaration of a nationwide withdrawal of teaching and related activities among member public universities, all local branch executives were tasked by the National Executive Committee (NEC) to convene an emergency meeting to solicit the views of members on the way forward.”

“On behalf of the NEC, National would like to forward to you resolutions received from the thirteen (13) member public universities,” parts of the statement read.
