UTAG calls off intended strike

The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) has decided to hold back its strike until the expiration of the negotiation period.

This follows a meeting on April 16, with the National Labour Commission (NLC) and some representatives of government, including Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang, Minister of Education, Mr. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, Deputy Minister in charge of Tertiary Education and the Executive Secretary of the National Council for Tertiary Education.

UTAG’s decision to go on strike was in respect of government's non-payment of book and research allowances.

A statement signed by Dr. Samuel Awinkene Atintono, UTAG National Secretary, and copied to the Ghana News Agency on Thursday said: “The association is going to respect the directive by the NLC to both parties to negotiate and report to the Commission on May 14.
