The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) has given notice that if the government does not meet their demand by Friday, October 8, they will resume their strike.
The decision to resume the strike was made on October 1 at a meeting of the National Executive Committee.
“Our circular dated 20th August 2021 with reference number UTAG/NAT/2021/UP03 and the third update on the suspension of the withdrawal of teaching and related activities dated 22nd September 2021 refers,” according to a statement released on Tuesday, October 5.
“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 that formed the basis for suspending the strike action, it is regrettable to report that the one-month moratorium has expired and the negotiation has nearly reached a stalemate.
“Unfortunately, despite UTAG’s numerous concessions, the Employer never modified its position during the one-month moratorium.
