Sad news for all students, particularly university students: see below for information.
The National Executive Council (NEC) of the Universities of Ghana-Senior Staff Association has served notice that an industrial strike will resume on 21 January 2021.
On 13 January 2021, a letter addressed to the National Labour Commission indicated that an industrial strike had taken place.
It’ as a result of government’s continuous failure and the utter disregard for their interests”.
The letter cited public universities’ non-payment of tier-2 pension arrears, market rates and non-basic allowances, and migration.
And also, as some of their issues, on to the Auditor and Accountant General payroll system.
The failure of the Equal Wages and Salaries Commission to include them in their terms of service was also listed as another concern.
Finally, it added that all efforts to include stakeholders to resolve the issues were ineffective.
