Accra-based Joy FM is reporting that the Technical University Teachers Association of Ghana (TUTAG) has vowed to continue with its plan to strike from Monday the 14th of June despite an order from the National Labour Commission to suspend the industrial action.
President of the Association, Michael Brigandi, is reported to have made the vow on JoyNews Sunday.
On Friday, June 11, TUTAG announced that its members will embark on a partial strike from Monday, June 14.
The strike is in response to poor conditions of service according to the Association.
During the strike, TUTAG members are not to teach, invigilate, mark examination papers and/or submit results and attend meetings of any of the Technical Universities.
However, in consideration of students, members have been advised to supervise project works, research, and community service.
But the National Labour Commission (NLC) subsequently instructed the Association to suspend its intended strike and appear before it on Wednesday, June 16, 2021.
According to Mr. Brigandi, the Association’s President, TUTAG will continue with its strike nonetheless.
