University teachers in Ghana have called off their seven-week old strike until 4 March to further engage with the government over members’ conditions of service, an official statement said.
The teachers’ association (University Teachers Association of Ghana) in a statement on Monday (21 February) said it took into consideration appeals made by respected eminent leaders like former President John Agyekum Kufuor, who is the Chancellor of the University of Mines and Technology (UMaT), and Sir Sam Jonah, who is the Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast (UCC).
The leadership has therefore called on members to “heed to the advice of the eminent leaders, the select committee on education and the court ruling to suspend our strike action up to 4 March, 2022 to engage with government”.
