The Technical University Teachers Association (TUTAG) has called off its two-week-long strike following a meeting with the government and other stakeholders to resolve the issues.

After the crunch meeting, the government and its agencies agreed to pay all allowances due eligible TUTAG members, such as rent, security, maintenance, utility and off-campus allowances.

The payments are to be effected by December 2019, while the arrears that were due them since August 2019 would be paid by the end of February 2020.

Following the fruitful meeting, the National Labour Commission (NLC) directed members of TUTAG to end the strike immediately.

The Executive Secretary of the NLC, Mr Ofosu Adamoah, who confirmed the road map to the Daily Graphic, said it was expected that “by tomorrow TUTAG members will move back to the classrooms for smooth academic work.”

The ruling followed a meeting with the NLC, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations, TUTAG executive, the National Council for Tertiary Education (NCTE), the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission and the Controller and Accountant General’s Department to discuss the concerns of TUTAG and arrive at a road map.
