1 min read

The National Labour Commission has advised the Technical University Teachers’ Association of Ghana (TUTAG) to suspend their strike slated for Monday, June 14.

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 review of conditions of service and payment of arears of research allowances.

“We are by this letter inviting all the parties to appear before the commission on Wednesday, June 16 at 3:00pm for a hearing of the issues in dispute.”

TUTAG served notice of an industrial action on Friday, June 11.

Earlier in a press release, TUTAG stated that they have engaged government, other agencies and the National Labour Commission on their concerns. However, their discussions are yet to yield positive results.

“The National Labour Commission, for instance, failed  to enforce its ruling, in August 2019, in our favour regarding what is due TUTAG members,” parts of the press statement read.

TUTAG stated that, it is against this background that they are left with no option than to declare this indefinite partial strike to get their demands heard.
