POTAG ordered to call off strike


The National Labour Commission has directed Polytechnic Teachers across the country to call off their strike.

The commission says the strike is illegal.
The Polytechnic Teachers Association of Ghana (POTAG) has been on strike for a week following an ultimatum to government to release monies meant for research work of lecturers in public tertiary institutions.

The Commission met POTAG on Wednesday over the issue and asked them to go back to the classroom.

Speaking to Joy News, POTAG President James Dugrah said members are disappointed at the Labour Commission because it failed to be proactive in preventing their strike.

He explained that the NLC received their letter stating their intentions over a month ago but decided to sleep on the letter.

He also accused the NLC of not giving the Association fair hearing.

‘When we got there, we realized that they didn’t even listen to us, they just picked our letter and started punching holes that our letter is not explicit and for that matter our strike is illegal”.
