The University of Ghana branch of the University Teachers’ Association of Ghana (UG-UTAG) has rejected a decision by the National Executive Council (NEC) of UTAG to approve the Memorandum of Agreement signed with government on October 6, 2021.

They have also declared an indefinite strike action commencing January 3, 2022.

According to UG-UTAG, the decision to approve and ratify the MoA was subjected to a vote by all branch members of UTAG as provided under article XI section 3 of the UTAG constitution and was subsequently rejected.

“Consequently, the University of Ghana branch of UTAG (UG-UTAG), at its meeting held on Friday 17th December 2021, upheld its resolution of 8th October 2021, that overwhelmingly rejected the 6th October 2021 MoA that among others, proposed USD 1600 Research Allowance payable to UTAG members in 2024.

“The Friday 17th December meeting of UG-UTAG also rejected the purported NEC acceptance of the proposed Research Allowance, at its meeting on 11th November 2021,” the statement announcing the strike stated.

It added that six other branch members of UTAG, that is KNUST, UDS, UEW, SDD-UBIDS, CKT-UTAS, and UENR supported their decision to reject the MoA.

It also communicated its resolution “to take a unilateral decision to stand on its resolution of rejection of the MoA, and embark on an indefinite industrial action effective January 3, 2022.”

“We call on all other branch members to support our decision to dissociate ourselves from the UTAG National leadership for entering into a deal that does not completely represent the interest of its membership, except perhaps for themselves only,” it concluded.
