TUTAG declares indefinite strike over unpaid allowances

Members of the Technical University Teachers Association of Ghana (TUTAG) have declared an indefinite strike today, November 18, 2022, over the delay of payment of the new rate fuel allowance.

In a statement signed by the National President, Surv. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Collins Ameyaw and the General Secretary, Abubakari Zakari (Ph.D.), the Association said the issues directed earlier to the Minister of Education, Minister of Finance, Chairman of the National Labour Commission (NLC) and the Chief Executive Officer of the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission in a letter dated September 26, 2022, had not been addressed.

“TUTAG views the inaction by these agencies as an indication that the concerns expressed in our letter have not been treated with the seriousness they deserve.”

“In view of all these, and upon further deliberations by the National and Chapter Executives of TUTAG, we declare an indefinite strike action which takes immediate effect.” The Association said.

The Association last week threatened to commence its strike action if the government failed to honour its condition of service which has been pending since 2016.
