The Technical University Teachers Association of Ghana have indicated that they are willing to call off their indefinite strike action should government set a definite date for the resolution of all their concerns.
The Technical University Teachers Association of Ghana (TUTAG) faults the Ministry of education, through the National Council for Tertiary Education for failing to migrate them unto the conditions of service of public universities.
The Association believes government is taking it for granted because it has refused to meet them to discuss their grievances and that government is discouraging the labour commission from also meeting them.
Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the Association, Ibrahim Zubeiru said the Association had been contacted by the Labour Commission to appear before it for discussions on the matter with a view to resolving their grievances, explaining that the meeting was called off at the last minute via instructions from the Minister for education.
According to him, they were disrespected by the Labour commission because the commission failed to communicate to them that the meeting had been called off.
‘’When we got to their premises, someone met us at the gate and told us that the meeting had been called off and that it was the Minister for education that called to instruct them to call off the meeting. Our people came from all over the country. So they didn’t have the courtesy to call back and inform us that the meeting had been called off.
