UTAG strike: We won’t meet NLC until court decides


University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) is insisting that they will not meet the National Labour Commission to table over their grievances until the legalLegal tussle in court is completely settled.

UTAG refused to return to the classroom despite NLC court order to compel the striking lecturers to resume work.

UTAG has since filed a motion in court to challenge the NLC court injunction to compel them to suspend their nationwide strike with the NLC threatening to run back to court to press contempt of court charges against UTAG for refusing to comply with the restraining order.

But, according University of Ghana Chapter of UTAG, Dr. Samuel Ekoban , UTAG has already taken steps to to set aside the court injunction.

Speaking in an interview monitored by African Editors in Accra on Wednesday 11 August 2021, “Dr. Samuel Ekuban said ” Only court can decide the future of our strike whether it will be called-off or not. We’re even ready to challenge the contempt charges the NLC is seeking to file against UTAG. We’ll not meet the NLC until the court determines the matter “.

He noted that “What will convince us to go to back to the classroom is when the government show good fate by resolving our concerns”.
