UTAG suspends intended strike
The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) has suspended its planned strike action it announced last week.
UTAG had asked the government to pay them all outstanding book research allowance or they will strike.
But the Association has disclosed the government shown the needed commitment to pay the allowance for the 2019/2020 academic year.
“UTAG would like to inform the public and all stakeholders that it has suspended the intended withdrawal of its service in all the public universities by the close of the day, Monday, September 14, 2020.”
“This decision follows from a show of commitment by the government towards the payment of last academic year’s book and research allowances. UTAG has gathered pieces of information through its discussions with the people representing government that amply suggest that the government is heeding to the call of UTAG to pay the allowance, which should have been paid by the end of July 2020 at the latest.”
