UTAG to determine next line of action after court hearing today

Professor Solomon Nunoo

Professor Solomon Nunoo, National President of the University Teachers Association of Ghana has stated that UTAG will communicate its next line of action to the court today February 15th 2022.

He narrated how the series of meetings both internally among members of the association after other meetings with the National Labor Commission and Education Ministry yielded no results,

“We will update the court on the outcome of our meetings today. We have had two meetings with the government so far with the last being last Thursday. Both ended inconclusively.”

“We (UTAG) held a meeting on Sunday to review our industrial action so far. We will report to the court on the outcome of our meeting,” he said. 

 Public Relations Officer of the Ministry of Education, Kwesi Kwarteng also stated: “We have had meetings in various forms. As of now, a lot of these engagements have ended inconclusively. We still have not come up with concrete resolutions.”

“We will be heading to court on Tuesday for a determination of the case. We will wait for the outcome of the court and see the way forward,” he said.

He insisted that the Ministry will be unable to negotiate with UTAG, as long as it remains on strike.

“Our Labour laws are clear on that. We can’t be expected to relent on this when UTAG does not seem to be willing to compromise.”

Aggrieved members of the University Teacher’s Association of Ghana insist they will not return to the lecture halls until the government meets their demands for better conditions of service.
