Striking lecturers in all 10 technical universities in Ghana have resolved to get back to work with immediate effects.
A statement from the Technical University Teachers Association of Ghana has confirmed that their decision follows the conclusion of negotiations on internally generated fund-related conditions of service, off- campus and vehicle maintenance allowances between the government and labour unions.
TUTAG on 18 November declared an indefinite strike over what it describes as government’s failure to address a litany of demands including new rates for fuel allowance to reflect current economic conditions.
In a statement on Saturday (10 December), TUTAG urged all members in the 10 public universities to resume work on Monday 12 December.
“Following conclusion of negotiation on internally generated fund-related conditions of service, off-campus and vehicle maintenance allowance and pursuant to the memorandum of agreement signed between the government team and labour unions (TUTAG, UTAG, GAUA and TEWU), we announce the suspension of the strike declared on Monday 18 November 2022.
“We therefore urge all members in the 10 public universities to resume work on Monday 12 December 2022,” the TUTAG statement said.
