Labour unions in public universities threaten to strike Oct. 13
Labour unions in the various public universities across the country have given government a week to reverse a directive that seeks to negatively compromise the conditions of service of university workers.
This comes on the back of a press conference organised by 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) on Wednesday, 5 October 2022, at the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA).
A statement issued by the four labour unions said: “Upon further deliberations among the National Leaders, we write to communicate that the intended strike action of all labour unions in the public universities in Ghana takes effect from Thursday, 13 October 2022.”
It indicated that: “This gives the employer and all stakeholders of tertiary education in Ghana one crucial week to reverse the directive that seeks to negatively compromise the Conditions of Service of University Workers.”
The National Leadership of the Labour Unions in the public universities in Ghana therefore entreated “all members to stay calm and cooperate with leadership as we navigate this trying moment.”
