TEWU Hinders Mediation Attempts By FWSC
The Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) has expressed its disappointment with the leadership of the Teachers and Educational Workers Union (TEWU) for turning down an invitation to discuss their grievances on Thursday.
The Association together with the Federation of University Senior Staff Association of Ghana (FUSSAG) were supposed to meet with the FSWC to discuss salary issues.
But according to TEWU, they did not receive a formal invitation from the FWSC hence their absence at the meeting although FUSSAG honoured the invitation.
Both groups embarked on strike in protest against discrepancies in their salaries impeding academic work in all six public universities.
When Citi News contacted the Public Relations Officer of the FWSC Earl Ankrah, he explained that although the National Chairman of TEWU, Peter Lumor acknowledged that he received a call from the FWSC, ‘it seems invariably, he was stating that unless he received a letter that was written to them, he was not going to make it to the meeting.’
Mr. Ankrah however disclosed that the meeting between the FWSC and FUSSAG has been adjourned to next week Friday because, ‘FUSSAG requested that they wanted the university management to be at the meeting.’
‘I am hopeful that TEWU will take a cue and join the meeting’ he told Citi News.
