The Senior Staff Association – Universities of Ghana (SSA-UoG) and the Federation of Universities Senior Staff Association (FUSSAG) have, with immediate effect, suspended their industrial strike action which was declared on August 2, 2021.
This follows the National Labour Commission’s ruling on August 6, 2021, and various interventions made by the Minister of Education, Minister of Employment and Labour Relations and the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission on behalf of Government, “culminating in a road map that serves as a guide to ensure sincere and fairness in a speedy resolution of all the impasse between us and Government”.
A letter signed by the Chairman of SSA-UoG, Mr Zakaria Mohammed said the two unions would continue to engage faithfully with government and other relevant stakeholders in their fight for justice, fairness and equity in the salaries and allowances administration of our members.
“I therefore, call on all Senior Staff across the Sixteen (16) Public Universities in Ghana to resume work without further delay,” the letter said.
