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 lectures.

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.

UTAG is demanding the implementation of a 2012 Single Spine package which put entry-level lecturers on a salary of $2,084.

The strike which has lasted over 3 weeks had now ended following an agreement made between the UTAG and NLC. This means all academic activities in the various universities are to start any time soon.

Some schools were about starting the exams and could start anytime soon as the strike has been called off
