Members of the Technical University Teachers Association of Ghana (TUTAG) have been directed to call off their four-day-old strike.

A statement from the National Labour Commission (NLC) on Friday, ruled that the directive takes immediate effect.

The lecturers drawn from eight technical university across Ghana on Monday, declared an indefinite strike to protest the non-payment of some allowances.

According to the Association, the government has “refused to fully comply” with the ruling by the National Labour Commission (NLC) that members of the association start receiving allowances due them.

Delivering its ruling after a meeting with representative of TUTAG, the Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Employment and Labour Relation, Ministry of Education and other stakeholders, the National Labour Commission said payment will be done for six out of the right technical universities who submitted their data by January 29.
