We Won’t Tolerate Any IMF Conditionality That Negatively Affects Our Existing Agreements – UTAG

According to the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG), any conditions imposed by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) that have been made in order to enhance member conditions of service will not be tolerated.

The Ghanaian government must make sure that the terms of the funding do not jeopardize the working conditions of labor unions, including UTAG, according to a statement from the union.

The statement emphasized that "in particular, UTAG would not tolerate any IMF conditionality that adversely affects the existing agreements between Government and UTAG to improve the Conditions of Service of our members."

Additionally, UTAG advised the government to seize the chance to visit the IMF this time to utilize local specialists to help the creation of a comprehensive program that will form. The Akufo-Addo administration is seeking assistance from the IMF.

After speaking on the phone with IMF Managing Director Miss Kristalina Georgieva to inform her of Ghana's resolve to work with the Fund on Friday, July 1, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo instructed the Finance Minister Mr. Ken Ofori-Atta to begin the discussions with the Fund.

This was revealed in a statement from the ministry of information. The Finance Ministry announced on Monday, July 4, that IMF representatives are scheduled to enter the nation on Tuesday, July 5.
