Threatening to go on strike over service allowance terms is UTAG.
In the event that the government does not reinstate their working conditions, the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) has vowed to resign from their position. Professor Solomon Nunoo, the president of UTAG, claims that the government's refusal to meet their demands, such as the Book and Research allowance, has a continuing impact on how they carry out their responsibilities.

Four public university labor unions have declared their intention to strike for the first time on Thursday, October 13, 2022. "This gives the employer and all stakeholders in tertiary education in Ghana one critical week to reverse the directive that seeks to negatively compromise university workers' working conditions," they said in a joint statement on Wednesday.
