NLC to meet UTAG over ongoing strike
The National Labour Commission (NLC) and the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) will meet leadership of University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) on Thursday, January 13, 2022 over the association’s ongoing strike.
NLC and FWSC hope to reach a consensus with UTAG regarding issues of their conditions of service.
UTAG has also alleged that FWSC had delayed in releasing the report of the Labour Market Survey.
Members of UTAG embarked on an indefinite nationwide strike on Monday, January 10.
Members on all campuses have withdrawn all teaching and other activities like examinations, invigilation, marking of examination scripts, and the processing of examination results.
UTAG has been asking government to restore the conditions of service agreed upon in 2012.
The 2012 conditions of service pegged the Basic plus Market Premium of a lecturer at $2,084.42.
Current arrangement pays each lecturer $997.84 in basic premium.
