It all depends on the Gov't, if we will go on with the strike - UTAG Prez threatens

The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) has threatened to go on strike this coming Friday, October 8, 2021 if government, who is their employer refuses to pay heed to their requests.

According to the newly-elected National President of the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG), Professor Solomon Nunoo, if the Ghanaian government doesn't do something about the on going conversation, University teachers will go on strike as promised.

He made this statement during an interview with Peace FM's Kwame Sefa Kai this morning.

He revealed that in regards to the implementation of the new Market premium  and non-basic allowance, the government has asked for some time but no conclusion has been drawn in regards to research allowance.

"Now we're looking at research allowance. They told us that for the non-basic allowance and the labour market survey, we should give them up till the end of October to finish that talk. So we agreed to do that.

However, when it comes to research allowance, we haven't agreed on anything yet. It's like we are at different paces with the government in regards to the pay. So now, we have to hold a meeting with our employer", Prof. Nunoo stated.

He added that, "at least we've spoken with our members who have also spoken with their people. If we're able to meet midway with government, I believe in a week or two we should be done with whatever discussions".

Prof. Solomon Nunoo, however, indicated that whatever the outcome of their discussions depends on government since it's their employer and so in charge of their salaries and allowances.
