The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG), as you read is still embarking on its indefinite strike action that took effect on Monday 2nd August, 2021 due to its disparities with the government not paying them as agreed. They have reaffirmed their stand not to go back to the lecture halls, if the government will not do anything about their plight.
In a statement released by the court ordering UTAG to cut off their indefinite strike and go back to lecturing, has proven futile. The UTAG leaders in response to the statement says, they are not cutting off their strike until the government does the needful, by doing what he is supposed to do long ago.
In an interview with the President of National Union Ghana Schools, Mr. Emmanuel Yiadom Boakye, says, their members will not return to work if the government refuses to pay them as agreed. He says, “both UTAG and government should come to an compromise.
Professor Ransford Gyampoh, UTAG secretary, was also called over the phone lines to chip-in his bit. He also says the government should do his possible best and pay lecturers.
So, from the look of things, UTAG is no where near going back to work as you read now. They are still adamant on their indefinite strike aside court intervention.
