UTAG agrees to call off strike as NLC and Employment Ministry move to discontinue legal process

The University Teachers Association (UTAG) has agreed to suspend its strike following an emergency meeting with the National Labour Commission and the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations.

This is contained in a memorandum of agreement between government and UTAG.

In conjunction with the National Labour Commission, the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations also agreed to discontinue all legal processes against the striking lecturers.

National Labour Commission secured the injunction against the strike, arguing that the law forbids UTAG from proceeding on the industrial action when negotiations are underway.
