We’re Still On Strike, Ignore Fake Reports – UTAG

Spread the love

The General Secretary  of the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG), UG (Legon) Chapter , Dr. Bentel Quansah Bentum , says the Association has not suspended its strike action although it has agreed to resume work following an emergency meeting with the National Labour Commission (NLC) and Employment and Labour Relations Ministry.




In a memorandum of agreement sighted by MyGhanaMedia.com, UTAG has agreed to take steps to suspend the ongoing strike action whilst the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations in conjunction with the National Labour Commission (NLC) take steps to discontinue all legal processes against the association.


But speaking with Obouba Ofori Amanfo on Ahenkan FM’s “Maakye” morning show monitored by MyGhanaMedia.com, Dr Bentel  said the Association cannot state whether its strike action has been called off or not since such a decision is dependent on the actions yet to be taken by the government.


“Today’s outcome is still contingent on a number of things happening and so it is no guarantee that we are off or on because what is contingent is that.. we have done a road map to give us a one month period within which we must have agreed with government on what it is we want or that we agree on what it is that is acceptable by general membership that we can work with. Aside that, also premised on is the fact that all the legal processes are discontinued against UTAG because we can’t be in court.


“So the condition of UTAG also taking steps to suspend the action is premised on these things and we are looking forward to the next day or two to see how those pan out. We haven’t suspended action as we speak. Suspension of the action is premised on the steps both parties are taking,” he explained.
