The National Labour Commission has asked the Technical University Teachers’ Association of Ghana (TUTAG) not to go on with their intended strike on Monday 14th June 2021.
In a press release signed by the Executive Secretary, Ofosu Asamoah, the Commission invited the leadership of TUTAG to appear before the commission to discuss their grievances. The NLC stated that, in the letter released by TUTAG, four main issues were cited as reasons for the strike. These include; delay in the review of conditions of service and payment of arrears of research allowances.
“We are by this letter inviting all the parties to appear before the commission on Wednesday, June 16 at 3:00 pm for a hearing of the issues in dispute.”
TUTAG served notice of an intended strike action on Friday, June 11.
Earlier in a press release, TUTAG stated that they have engaged the government, other agencies, and the National Labour Commission on their concerns. However, their discussions are yet to yield any results.
“The National Labour Commission, for instance, failed to enforce its ruling, in August 2019, in our favor regarding what is due TUTAG members.”
