National Labour Commission.

The National Labour Commission (NLC), has invited the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG), and the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC), to a meeting over the ongoing strike by the teacher union.

The meeting slated for January 12, 2022, is for a “hearing of the issues in dispute”.

It comes on the back of allegations by UTAG that the FWSC had delayed in releasing the report of the Labour Market Survey (LMS). NLC in a statement said, “UTAG should have complied with section 159 of Act 651 where the Commission would be served the required notice to enable it to intervene promptly.

To this end, the meeting is being convened in line with the NLC’s mandate under section 138 of Act 651, and also powers under section 139 of Act 651. The parties are urged to take note of the time and date and appear as scheduled”.
