The Technical Universities Teachers Association of Ghana (TUTAG) has iterated that, it’s members will today embark on its planned strike despite a directive from the National Labour Commission to call off the strike and come to the negotiation table on Wednesday.
According to Dr. Michael Akurugu National President of TUTAG, the strike is in force pending the meeting with the Labour Commission. He said, the decision was collectively taken by members of the Association and cannot be reversed by one person.
“We only received an invitation to attend a meeting on Wednesday in which it indicated that it heard that we are going to embark on a strike effective Monday, June 14, 2021, and that we should refrain from it. Declaring a strike or calling off a strike takes a whole process.”
“It is a congress decision for us to go on strike, and so we are going to meet the NLC on Wednesday and listen to what they have to say, but for now nothing is going to change until we know what the NLC has for us.”
