In a letter issued by the Technical University Teachers’ Association of Ghana (TUTAG) declares it publicly their intention on going on strike.
The press conference is a brief one since the matter to both government and TUTAG is made simple and straightforward.
Though government has agreed in writing that they are to enjoy same conditions of service comparable to the traditional universities, that is yet to be implemented.
2018/2019 Research Arrears due TUTAG members has since been pending
Tier-Two pension for TUTAG members going on retirement has since not commenced despite promises by government .
TUTAG on several occasions has reminded the government and the National Labour Commission on these issues, but has never received even an acknowledgment.
For that reason, TUTAG is left with no option than to declare an indefinite partial strike with effect from Monday 14th June 2021.
By this declaration, TUTAG members should not engage in any of the following activities:
- Supervision of students
- Marking of examination scripts and submission of results
- Attending meetings of the university
