Aggrieved staff of public universities suspend intended strike after meeting with NLC

The planned strike by four worker unions at Ghana's public universities over working conditions has been postponed.

The unions are the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG), Tertiary Education Workers Union (TEWU), Senior Staff Association of Universities of Ghana (SSA-UoG), and the Ghana Association of University Administration (GAUA).

The Unions threatened to go on an indefinite strike starting today, Thursday, October 13, 2022, if the government didn't address their concerns about their working conditions.

However, following a meeting with the NLC, the four labor unions have decided to postpone their planned strike until Wednesday, October 20, 2022, to allow for meetings with the Employer to take place.

After considering all of the information, the Commission ordered that the Employer meets with the four (4) Labor Unions on Friday, October 14, 2022, and Monday, October 17, 2022, to "discuss terms of payment and other related matters.

The parties are to report back to the Commission on Wednesday, 19th October 2022 at 3 pm.

The planned strike action by all labor unions in Ghana's public universities, which was to start today, October 13, 2022, has been delayed due to this development, the unions said in a statement.

The unions further stated that "should the meetings with the employers yield no result," they would go on an indefinite strike.
