The Teachers, Education, and Workers Union (TEWU) has initiated an indefinite strike, citing the government’s failure to fulfill its terms and conditions of service as the primary cause.
TEWU leader, Suleman Abdul Rahman, emphasized the urgency of disbursing tier 2 pension funds to fund managers promptly.
He said, “TEWU demands immediate payment of the tier 2 pension funds by the government to the fund management.”
Furthermore, TEWU is pressing for the equitable provision of vehicle maintenance allowance to deserving staff members in public institutions, without discrimination.
The group’s leadership contends that addressing the terms and conditions of service is crucial for ensuring effective work delivery from the workers’ union.
Expressing dissatisfaction with the government’s lackadaisical approach to their demands, the statement asserts that TEWU will continue the indefinite strike until its terms and conditions are met.
The group accuses the government of Ghana of paying mere lip service to their concerns.
In response to the perceived neglect of TEWU members in traditional universities, the group is set to embark on an indefinite strike starting from February 1, extending until their demands are adequately addressed.
TEWU has joined the Senior Staff Association-Universities of Ghana (SSA-UoG) and the Federation of Universities Senior Staff Association of Ghana (FUSSAG) in the strike action.
