- This was contained in a statement released by the Technical University Teachers’ Association of Ghana
- The decision to embark on a strike was reached after a failure to reach satisfactory terms of their condition of service with the National Labour Commission
Information available to YEN.com.gh shows that technical universities in Ghana have begun an indefinite strike.
In a letter that has since gone viral, the Technical University Teachers’ Association of Ghana (TUTAG) revealed that the Ministry of Education (MoE) has not been fair in its dealings with them.
The letter, signed by TUTAG’s General Secretary, Joseph Danso, they directed their members to therefore withdraw their services with immediate effect.
According to a report by MyNewsGH.com, the statement revealed that the directive takes effect from Wednesday, September 12, 2018.
It added that the MoE had failed to migrate the members of the association unto the conditions of service for public universities.
It further revealed that the National Labour Commission (NLC) had displayed gross disrespect to TUTAG after calling for a meeting to deal with the matter.
After both parties showed up for the meeting, the NLC allegedly filed to listen to TUTAG’s grievances and left them stranded.
They therefore decided to declare an indefinite strike and therefore suspend their services, in consonance with the labour laws of Ghana.
