UTAG To Begin Strike Today Over Conditions Of Service
The University Teachers Association of Ghana, UTAG, is set to begin an indefinite strike from today the Monday, January 10, 2021. The association in a statement dated January 6, 2022, complained about what it refers to as the lack of trust that has also so far characterised their engagements with Fair Wages and Salaries Commision
FWSC. The National Executive Commitee NEC of UTAG thus resolved to also withdraw all teaching and related activities, effective today, Monday, January 10, over the that failure of employer to adhere to agreed timelines. UTAG members on campuses are to also withdraw all teaching and other activities too like the examinations,
invigilation, marking of examination scripts and the processing of examination results. The association has been asking the government to restore the conditions of service agreed upon in 2012. The 2012 conditions of service pegged the Basic plus Market Premium of a lecturer at $2,084.42. UTAG has complained that the current arrangement has reduced its members’ basic premiums to $997.84.
