NLC sues UTAG over strike

Non-Teaching Staff of Colleges of Education call off strike

The National Labour Commission (NLC), has sued the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG), on its strike.

The NLC prayed the court for an Order for Interlocutory Injunction compelling the respondent whether by itself, its executives, officers, members, agents, servants, employees, or other persons to comply with the Directive of the National Labour Commission to call off its industrial action and resume negotiation with its employers pending the final determination of the suit.

The NLC had earlier ruled that the strike by UTAG was illegal but UTAG insisted not to return to the classroom until the Association’s concerns were addressed.

UTAG, NLC negotiations

Earlier, negotiations between the state and UTAG last week broke down, which compelled the NLC to seek intervention from the courts. But the court action was dropped to allow for the parties to return to the negotiations table.

Meanwhile, National Secretary of UTAG, Dr. Asare Annor in an interview confirmed the latest action by the NLC to 3NEWS.
