The University of Ghana chapter of the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UG-UTAG) has announced its intent to strike on 10 January 2022.
Secretary of UG-UTAG, Prof Ransford Gyampo confirmed the expected industrial action on the above date.
According to him, all stakeholders have been served with the notice for their intended strike action but the National Labour Commission (NLC).
The strike is to protest the National Executive Committee’s (NEC) decision to accept the government’s Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) proposing among others the payment of a $1,600 research allowance to members of UTAG.
UG-UTAG said the NEC accepted the MoA despite disagreements from some chapters of UTAG.
UG-UTAG wants the NEC to withdraw its communiqué suggesting that an agreement was reached by UTAG members to accept the research allowance.
