The leadership of the Technical University Teachers Association of Ghana (TUTAG), has hinted of suspending its nationwide strike on Friday, June 18.
The decision was taken after a meeting with the National Labour Commission (NLC) on Wednesday, June 16, over TUTAG’s concerns.
The Association began a partial nationwide strike on Monday, June 14, to demand payment of their 2018/2019 Research arrears and negotiation of their conditions of service, among other issues.
At a meeting held on Wednesday between TUTAG, NLC, and representatives from government, it was agreed that the concerns of TUTAG be resolved within three months.
This was revealed to GBC NEWS in an interview with the Executive Secretary of the NLC, Ofosu Asamoah.
He disagreed with the notion that Labour Unions resort to strike as their first action in resolving their concerns.
Meanwhile, leadership of TUTAG says it will not call off its strike but will suspend it as negotiations continue. In view of this, members of the Association are to resume work on Monday as suspension of the strike takes effect tomorrow.
President of TUTAG, Dr. Michael Brigandi, justified their decision to go on strike. According to him, going on strike gets them the results they need.
