UTAG Strike: Lectures To Begin Today
Following the suspension of the University Teachers Association of Ghana’s strike, the country’s 15 public universities are set to resume full academic activity today (UTAG).
This is despite the fact that referenda had been held across the association’s many branches to confirm or reject the decision of the association’s National Executives Committee (NEC) to stop the strike, which began on January 10 this year.
Once the strike has been suspended, lecturers are required to return to the classrooms, according to UTAG’s constitution.
This determines whether they begin the process of voting against the decision or not. Dr Asare Asante-Annor, the Secretary of UTAG, said that professors will be in lecture halls and theatres today, especially in institutions that had indicated that classes would resume on that day.
“Some universities are yet to announce when they will resume classes, and we have no influence over them. However, all those who have stated that lectures would continue on Monday, we will be there,” he stated.
The association will meet with the government on Wednesday and Thursday to continue the negotiations, according to Dr. Asante-Annor.
