The Governing Council of the University of Cape Coast (UCC) will meet on Thursday, February 10 to decide whether or not to close the school, according to a highly placed insider within this fine institution. The judgment is based on the institution’s legislation, which specifies that the school must close after 21 days of non-academic activities.
UTAG went on strike on January 10, 2022, in protest of “worsening service conditions.” Some critical talks on the way forward are already underway, according to inspections conducted by the Ghana News Agency (GNA) last week.
As a result, the walkout aims to compel the government to reinstate the 2012 condition of service, which set the Basic and Market Premium for a lecturer at 2,084.42 dollars. The existing arrangement, according to the Association, has resulted in a premium shortfall of 997.84 dollars for their members.
Many students have been waiting for a long time to learn what efforts have been taken to guarantee that things are restored to their previous state. The Governing Council, in their wisdom, believes that since UTAG and the government have failed to resolve their disagreements, a decision on the way forward is required.
