TUTAG declares strike beginning Tuesday


    Members of the Technical Universities Teachers Association of Ghana (TUTAG) have declared strike over what they say is the failure of the government to fully migrate them onto the single spine salary structure.

    The Association in October last year went on a sit down strike over poor conditions of service.

    Last year, speaking at the investiture of the first substantive Vice Chancellor, Pro Vice Chancellor, Registrar and Director of Finance for the Takoradi Technical University, Minister of State in charge of Tertiary Education at the Education Ministry, Prof. Kwesi Yankah appealed to the striking lecturers to return to the classrooms following proposals to improve their salaries and allowances

    “I am aware of the proposals put forth by government, they are fair and attractive and that this will be put before the general membership of TUTAG on their respective university campuses by their executives, I urge TUTAG to demonstrate tremendous goodwill to government and the people of Ghana by responding positively by our call to return to classes, In fact you have a good case but make sure you do not over plug a good case which can turn around to lose public support,”
