UTAG threatens to resume strike if no concrete action is taken to resolve concerns

General Secretary of UTAG, Prof. Ransford Gyampo

The University Teachers Association of Ghana, UTAG, has threatened to resume their strike if government remains adamant about addressing their concerns.

Speaking to GBC News, General Secretary of UTAG, Prof. Ransford Gyampo, said the one-month negotiation period for government to resolve their concerns expires in four days, but nothing concrete has been achieved.

He accused the Minister of Finance of disrespecting them, by not attending meetings himself.

Prof. Gyampo wants the President and Vice President to intervene as lecturers on the various campuses are already bitter and angry.

Meanwhile, Deputy Minister of Finance, John Kumah, has appealed to UTAG to exercise patience as government works to factor their needs in the 2022 budget to be read in November.
