Accra High Court orders UTAG to suspend strike

JUNE UG UTAG to embark on indefinite strike

The Labour Division of the Accra High Court has placed an injunction on the ongoing strike by the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG).

With the injunction, UTAG is required to suspend the strike action and return to the negotiation table.

The order from the Court follows an appeal by the National Labour Commission (NLC) for an interlocutory injunction to suspend the strike by UTAG while negotiations continue.

UTAG is therefore expected to halt the strike until the Court determines the substantive application by the NLC.

The Court presided over by Justice Frank Aboadwe Rockson noted that ongoing negotiations between the parties may not yield any result if the industrial action continues. The Court had asked both parties to try an out-of-court settlement on two occasions.

Justice Aboadwe Rockson, thus, granted the injunction.

UTAG’s Lawyer, Kwasi Keli-Delataa, objected to the motion and pleaded with the Court to determine the substantive case before it.

But the judge overruled it.

The NLC sued UTAG, urging the Court to declare the strike illegal.

The case has been adjourned to February 22, 2022, at 1:30 pm.

Students have been left stranded on various campuses of public universities as there appears to be no end in sight for the industrial action by their lecturers.

But on both occasions, UTAG said they have not received any concrete offer from the government yet, thus causing all engagements to end inconclusively.

UTAG’s demands

UTAG wants the government to restore their 2012 conditions of service, which pegged the monthly income of entry-level lecturers at $2,084.

The Association has complained that the current arrangement has reduced its members’ basic premiums to $997.84.
