The Technical University Senior Administrators Association of Ghana (TUSAAG) has declared an indefinite strike over condition of services.

The strike comes after government failed to come to a consensus with respect to the ruling of the National Labour Commission (NLC) on 4th November, 2019 in the matter between the Technical University Senior Administrators Association of Ghana (TUSAAG) and the Ministry of Education to pay all allowances due Senior Members of the Technical Universities by 31st December, 2019.

Speaking at a press conference in Accra, National President of the Technical University Senior Administrators Association of Ghana (TUSAAG), Edem K. Honu, noted that it is aware of the fact that Government after the 31st December, 2019 deadline, has paid some allowances to some selected Senior Members of Technical Universities.

He added that, the Government’s action of not complying with the ruling of the NLC has eroded the utmost good faith and goodwill that the leadership of TUSAAG exhibited during the discussions between TUSAAG and the Government Team when the former withdrew its services.

“Thus, the failure by the Government to implement the ruling of the NLC has left TUSAAG with no other option than to embark on an indefinite strike action with effect from Wednesday, 8th January, 2020,” he added.
