UTAG AGREES TO SUSPEND ITS STRIKE AS THE NLC AND EMPLOYMENT MINISTRY DECIDE TO TERMINATE LEGAL PROCEEDINGS.

The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG), has agreed to put an end to its strike following an emergency meeting with the National Labour Commission (NLC) and Employment and Labour Relations Ministry.

News about this, is encompassed in a memorandum of agreement between the government and the Teachers Association.
The National Labour Commission in connivance with the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations also agreed to terminate all legal proceedings levelled up against the association embarking on the strike.

The National Labour Commission secured the court injunction against the strike, arguing that the law prohibits UTAG from proceeding on the industrial action when negotiations are underway.

UTAG is demanding the implementation of a 2012 Single Spine package which put entry-level lecturers on a salary of $2,084. Thus, in the memorandum, UTAG and the government have agreed to begin negotiations on the matter from Monday, August 23, 2021 so that the issue is resolved amicably.
