UTAG calls off intended strike

The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) has decided to hold back its planned 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 Minister of Education, Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang;  Deputy Minister in charge of Tertiary Education, Mr Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa; and the Executive Secretary of the National Council for Tertiary Education.

A statement signed by Dr Samuel Awinkene Atintono, UTAG National Secretary, 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.”

UTAG’s decision to go on strike was in respect of Government’s non-payment of book and research allowances. – See more at: http://graphic.com.gh/news/general-news/21522-utag-calls-off-intended-strike.html#sthash.Hdbxr4U8.dpuf
