Prof Gyampo -We Need Cash, We Don't Need Meetings

Professor Ransford Gyampo, a lecturer at the University of Ghana, and the Secretary of University Teachers Association, (UTAG) is of the view that, UTAG members need cash and don't need unproductive meetings.

In a post shared on his official Facebook page, on Wednesday, 19th January 2022 he wrote;

"UTAG, we must only honor meetings that are productive. Others cannot use us to create the impression as if they are working by calling us to meetings."

Prof Gyampo added that " Meetings that cannot commit government to honor its obligations towards us in improving our Conditions of Service are inconsequential. We need cash, we don’t need meetings."

The comment of Prof Gyampo comes as a background to the ongoing strike action declared by UTAG on 10th January, 2022. Various meetings with the government has proved futile.

Although the labour commission has said that the industrial action embarked on by UTAG is illegal, the association is adamant to call off the strike.

They demonstrated the same 6 months ago when they called off the initial strike for academic activities to continue. We are yet to see when they will call off the strike.
