The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) is insisting that its members will embark on strike beginning August 2, 2021, if issues concerning their conditions of service are not addressed by the end of July 2021.
In a statement signed by the National President Prof Charles Marfo and National Secretary of UTAG Dr Eric K K Abavare, states that “UTAG resolves to follow through its decision to withdraw TEACHING, one of its main duties, from 2nd August, 2021 if no agreement is reached by 31st July, 2021.”
The intension of the UTAG is on the grounds of Government’s failure to address the worsening conditions of UTAG’s members within an agreed period.
“In our last meeting with Government, UTAG strongly indicated to Government that if by the agreed date of end of negotiation-i.e, 31st July, 2021-no agreement is reached, the Association would have no option but to resort to indefinite strike” the statement added.
They have given the government a 9-day ultimatum from today, to agree on their terms and conditions or face whatever comes their way.
