UTAG To Resume Strike Again From October 8

The National Executive Committee of the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) has disclosed that its members will from Friday, October 8, lay down their tools and embark on an uninformed teaching and its related matters. 

According to a news release from the Association, the decision was reached after the committee held its 20th Congress following discussions with the government on Monday, September 26, to discuss its wages and welfare packages.

At the said meeting, it was revealed that government could not go beyond the Cedi equivalent of $1200 payable in 2024, an amount that was rejected by the Association in a previous meeting.

UTAG however, proposed a minimum of the Cedi equivalent of $250 per month for research allowance (plus a review of the 2024 implementation), and the implementation of the new Market premium by December 21, 2021.

Following a lack of agreement with government, the Association has decided to resume its suspended strike after a statement by its National Executive Committee is released on October 4.

The said release will contain the modalities of the strike action.

Also, the University Teachers Association of Ghana is insistent that it would not bargain its $250 per month for research.

It further added that “there is no need for any further negotiation on the proposed conditions of service” and “UTAG will only return to work after conditions 2 and 3 above are agreed and signed to by government.”
