The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) leadership has asked members on all campuses to resume academic work immediately, pending the outcome of its grievances deliberations with the government.
This was in response to the suspension of its industrial action, which began on August 2, this year.
“Things are looking up so far. “Everyone supports the suspension, and I have followed up with a statement to all of its branches on the various campuses to suspend the industrial action with immediate effect,” said UTAG President Professor Charles Marfo on Friday to the Daily Graphic.
He stated that the National Executive Committee (NEC) of UTAG met last week Thursday and decided to suspend the strike, and that all that remained was to notify the various campuses of its suspension.
According to the Daily Graphic, while all of the branches agreed and voted to end the strike, the University of Cape Coast branch voted against it.
The branch, the only dissenting voice among UTAG's 15 branches, stated that its constituents wanted concrete figures from the government before agreeing to suspend the strike and begin negotiations.
The branch stated that it did not understand the NEC's decision to suspend the strike action.
Dr Samuel Boadi-Kusi, Chairman of the UCC UTAG, stated that constituents demanded something more tangible from the government before any suspension.
