University Teachers Association of Ghana declare strike over poor services


The Universities Association of Ghana (UTAG) has notified all its members to withdraw all teaching and related activities with effect from Monday, August 2.


This appears to follow a breakdown in negotiations with government over the university teachers’ conditions of service including research allowances.


A circular jointly signed by National President Professor Charles Marfo and National Secretary Dr Eric Abavare on Friday, July 30 indicated that all campuses are to withdraw teaching, examinations, invigilation, marking of exam scripts, and processing of exam results services, among others, until further notice.


“We encourage all members on our various campuses to comply with this directive,” the circular urged.
