UTAG wants Gov’t Instead, Declines NLC Invitation

Strike

 

The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) has turned down an invitation by the National Labour Commission (NLC) in fulfillment of the out-of-court settlement order by the Accra High Court, presided by Justice Francis Rockson Aboagye. UTAG wants Gov’t Instead, Declines NLC Invitation.

InsteadThe Judge urged the two parties to resort to dialogue and report back to court on Thursday, February 10, 2022. The National Labour Commission has then invited the Public Universities’ Lecturers Association, UTAG to dialogue the impasse which the association has turned down.

The Lead Counsel for UTAG accepted the move by the Judge to move the impasse out of the court but indicated there is the need for the National Executive Council to consult its regional chapters before it could take any decision in that regard. He however stated, “that anytime UTAG showed good faith, the Employer reneged on its commitment”.

In a letter by the Solicitor of UTAG dated February 6, 2022, the University Teachers’ Association of Ghana has resolved to meet Government rather, and not the National Labour Commission anymore.

“We are grateful for the invitation to your proposed tripartite meeting, we honestly believe the more acceptable approach in the present circumstances is for our client to meet with the Government side of the impasse to try to iron out their remaining differences”, the letter stated.

UTAG has indicated it will report to the National Labour Commission when it meets the Government hence declining the invitation.

Background…

UTAG embarked on the industrial action on 10th January and since, has shown no sign of returning to the lecture hall. This follows last year’s strike which is all an attempt to demand better conditions of service from the employer.
