FUSSAG joins UTAG strike

The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) is now on strike in support of improved working conditions, and FUSSAG has joined them.

“Our members are also actively involved in the strike in whatever form, shape, or direction it takes,” FUSSAG stated in a statement.

The government’s decision to pay the 2022 fuel ex-pump allowance rather than the 2021 price, as well as the payment of car maintenance and off-campus allowances, are the subjects of the UTAG strike.

Teachers and Educational Workers Union (TEWU), Senior Staff Association of Universities of Ghana (SSA-UoG), and Ghana Association of University Administrators are more labor unions that have joined the strike (GAUA).

The strike was supported by the Technical University Teachers’ Association of Ghana (TUTAG).

It threatened to engage in a similar industrial action and stated that it supports the UTAG strike out of “common interest.”

The National Labour Commission (NLC) has given the striking unions instructions to end their strike right away.

This decision was made by the NLC following a meeting with UTAG members on October 20, 2022.

The Commission directed as follows:

  1. That the parties engage fitter on the “Terms of Payment and other related matters.
  2. That both parties should bring to the engagement table, people with mandate to take and/or make decisions.
  3. That the engagement should be held in good faith
  4. That UTAG should call off the strike immediately
  5. That the parties are given two weeks to conclude their engagement on report

PTA sends SoS message to govt over free SHS

The National Council of Parent-Teacher Associations (NCPTAs) has indicated a desire to support the government’s efforts in putting the free Senior High School (SHS) policy into practice.

The Council is of the opinion that in order for the policy to be sustainable and help the government’s financial burden, they will need to support it.

The Public Relations Officer (PRO), Irene Sam, warned of serious consequences if the government continued to refuse during the Beyi W’ano episode on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem.

“The government has performed well, and we are grateful for that, but we have reached a point where we must reinstate the PTA in order to support the schools. The sooner we take action because things are out of control, the better for everyone involved. The government ought to let us in for the benefit of our kids, she argued.

The regular food shortages in schools were another issue mentioned by Madam Sam, who emphasized that their assistance would go a long way toward resolving the issue.

“They keep telling us there are no food shortages, but our kids are famished in class, despite their assurances,” Nothing has changed despite our monitoring of the situation, she lamented.

She claims that they are constantly prepared to lend a hand as soon as the government gives the go-ahead, but all efforts have been in vain.

We have called the Education Ministry for a meeting and sent multiple letters, but no one has responded, she admitted.
