The Technical University Teacher’s Association of Ghana, TUTAG, has declared an indefinite strike effective today, Monday, 7 October 2019, to press home its demand for better conditions of service for the staff of technical universities in Ghana.
According to TUTAG, the action is to also demand the release of a staff audit report conducted by the National Council for Tertiary Education (NCTE).
On 6 August 2019, the Minister of Finance directed the Controller and Accountant General’s Department to pay the requisite emoluments to staff of the technical universities with effect from 1 August 2019.
“To our disappointment, the payment did not take effect as directed. September salaries did not reflect the public university pay structure,” a statement said.
