UTAG begins strike Monday over poor conditions of service

The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) have declared an indefinite strike from Monday, 10 January 2022.

The industrial action by the lecturers was contained in a statement dated January 8, 2022.

The Association cataloged a number of reasons for which they are laying down their tools.

Among them include “the pittance agreed to be paid as annual research allowance”.

They want among other things for the government to “reconsider the payment of a more realistic research allowance” as they said it is critical to their research output, promotion and ultimately national development.
