UTAG to challenge NLC order in court today Aug 9
University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) says it will today file process at the High Court to challenge National Labour Commission’s (NLC) interlocutory injunction to kowtow them to call-off their nationwide strike.
UTAG has been on a full-blown industrial action over worsening conditions of service forcing the NLC to secure a court order to compel the striking lecturers to return to classroom and pave the way for negotiation.
This move by the NLC to compel the striking UTAG with a restraining court order to resume work without first addressing their grievances did not sit well with the lecturers who continued to lay down their tools despite the NLC court injunction.
Speaking in an interview monitored by African Editors in on 9 August 2021 in Accra, President of UTAG Prof. Charles Marfo said “We’ll file to challenge the NLC court order today. How can you run to court for an order against us and want to engage us on the negotiation table. It doesn’t make legal sense. That’s why we’ll file today to challenge the NLC order in court”.
