The Technical University Teacher’s Association of Ghana (TUTAG), has declared an indefinite sit-down strike over poor working conditions effective Tuesday, October 7, 2019.
A letter by the National President of TUTAG, Dr Solomon A. Keelson, explained that the Association had been denied the required conditions of service for Public Universities since it was upgraded from Polytechnics to Technical Universities.
“We submitted a letter dated August 29, 2018, notifying the National Labour Commission (NLC) of our intention to embark upon industrial action to press home our demand for immediate migration.
“We subsequently received a letter from the NLC dated August 30, 2018, summoning us to a hearing scheduled for Wednesday, September 12, 2018. We attended upon this summons, but the NLC failed or neglected to sit and hear our case, and left us stranded at the offices of the Commission”.
