The Technical University Teachers’ Association of Ghana (TUTAG) has indicated that it will proceed with its strike today, June 14, despite an order from the National Labour Commission to suspend the protest.
The latest industrial action by the union is due to failure of government to meet their demands for improved conditions of service as well as the nonpayment of research allowance arrears and tier-two pension contributions for its members.
In a statement, TUTAG, asked its members not to teach, invigilate, supervise students, mark examination scripts, submit results or attend meetings of the university.
The statement, however, urged TUTAG members to continue to render community service in their capacities as lecturers.
But in a counter-statement signed by the Executive Secretary of the National Labor Comission, Mr Ofosu Asamoah, the leadership of TUTAG was invited to appear before the commission to discuss their grievances.
The meeting is supposed to take place on Wednesday, June 16 at 3:00 pm.
