UCC Votes in Favour of UTAG’s Nationwide Strike 

At the University College of Cape Coast (UCC), a critical referendum was held among members of the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) to decide on whether to accept or reject the decision by the National Executive Council (NEC) to embark on a strike action. The outcome of this referendum has stirred considerable interest, with 348 UTAG members casting their votes.

Of this number, a significant majority of 278 members, constituting 79.9%, voted in favor of the NEC decision, while 70 members, representing 20.1%, voted against it. This resounding endorsement of the strike action highlights the unity and determination among UTAG members to address pertinent issues affecting them.

In a breakdown of votes across the various public universities in Ghana, it was revealed that 9 out of the 15 member universities of UTAG have already cast their votes in favor of the strike action. However, there are still 6 university campuses yet to finalize their stance on supporting the decision to declare a nationwide strike.
