UTAG decides to call off the strike. As the NLC and Employment Ministry prepare to end the legal procedure.
Following an emergency meeting with the National Labour Commission (NLC) and the Employment and Labour Relations Ministry, the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) has agreed to call off its strike.
A memorandum of understanding between the government and the Teachers Association states this.
The Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations also agreed, in collaboration with the National Labour Commission, to end all legal proceedings against the striking lecturers.
National Labour Commission secured the injunction against the strike, arguing that the law forbids UTAG from proceeding on the industrial action when negotiations are underway.
UTAG is demanding the implementation of a 2012 Single Spine package which put entry-level lecturers on a salary of $2,084.
