Ghana Technology University UTAG branch votes against suspension of strike



The Ghana Communication Technology University chapter of the University Teachers Association of Ghana, UTAG, has voted against the suspension of the 6-week old strike.

Seventy-seven members voted against the suspension, while 25 were in favour of it.

The Ghana Communication Technology University thus joins the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST); the University of Energy and Natural Resources, University of Education, Winneba, as some of the schools that have rejected the NEC decision to suspend the strike.

UTAG’s National Executive Committee suspended its six-week-old strike on Tuesday after a meeting on Monday.

The resolution taken by the NEC of UTAG was however to be put before members of the Association to vote to reject or accept it.

UTAG had been on strike since January 10 to force the government to restore the conditions of service agreed upon in 2012.

The 2012 conditions of service pegged the Basic plus Market Premium of a lecturer at $2,084.42.

UTAG complained that the current arrangement has reduced its members’ basic premiums to $997.84.
