Just In: Court Orders UTAG to Call Off Strike.

The Supreme Court of Judicature in the High Court of Justice, Industrial/Labour Court 1 has ordered the University Teachers Association to put an end to its strike.

In a document released and signed today 6th August 2021, the court has put an Injunction for ten (10) days and stated that upon its expiration UTAG can come back on notice.

The University Teachers Association started its industrial it's industrial action this week on 2nd August 2021 with the reason that their conditions of service is poor and that the government should do something about it.

According to UTAG, meetings with the Labour Commission seems not to have been able to resolve their grievances over their poor condition of service and hence embarked on industrial action popularly known as strike.

President of UTAG, Professor Charles Marfo, in an interview this morning stressed that until their demands are met, they will continue to stay out of the classroom. It should be noted that some Universities in Ghana have started their end of semester examinations yet most have put a halt to the exams since they declared the strike.

Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, University of Cape Coast, University of Ghana and other public universities has all join on this strike.

We wait for further development from UTAG on what they will say about the court Injunction.

Below is the document released by the Court to order UTAG to comply
