UTAG Reacts To NLC’s Injunction

UTAG reacts to NLC’s injunction

The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) has expressed disappointment in the National Labour Commission (NLC) over an injunction against their strike.

UTAG members are on strike demanding that the government restores the conditions of service agreed upon with the government in 2012.

The National Executive Committee (NEC) of UTAG on August 2, 2021, directed members to withdraw all teaching and related activities on campus.

The decision to embark on an industrial strike, according to the NEC, was borne out of the government’s refusal to heed calls by the Association to improve the worsening conditions of service of the university teachers.

However, the NLC on Friday secured an ex parte interlocutory injunction to compel the members to call off their strike.

Reacting to the development on Adom FM’s midday news, the National Chairman, Prof. Charles Marfo, stated no invitation was sent to them.

Prof Marfo said UTAG has not received any such official document on the injunction and will continue with their strike until their demands are met.

“It is disappointing they are saying we refused to show up when they summoned us and also to the court. This kind of situation weakens the confidence the citizens have in state institutions,” he lamented.

He added they are yet to receive a response to a letter sent to NLC on July 15, 2021, three weeks ahead of the strike.

Ghanaians On Twitter Mock Ghana Police As BoG Set To Scrap GH¢1 And GH¢2 Notes; See Reactions

The GH¢1 and GH¢2 notes will be phased out of circulation soon, as the Bank of Ghana gradually plans to remove them from circulation.

According to the Central Bank, the poor handling of the notes, that is torn and soiled, make it expensive to print them.

Governor of the Bank of Ghana, Dr. Ernest Addison, addressing the press said the Central Bank will not print any more of the ¢1 and ¢2 notes when those in circulation are phased out.

According to him, the two denominations will be replaced by the ¢1 and ¢2 coins respectively.

“The view for the longer term is to more or less get the ¢1 and ¢2 notes and use the ¢1 and ¢2 notes coins.”

“Both the GH¢1 and GH¢2 notes would eventually be phased out because they are not cost-effective in terms of the printing cost”, he pointed out.

“These are notes that circulate very widely, and they come back very torn and soiled and they are very difficult for our currency processing machines to process. We have bales and bales of ¢1 notes that we are not able to process”, Dr. Addison stressed.

“You will recall that this is a note [¢2] that was issued as a commemorative note; commemorative notes are not notes that you continue to print”, he continued.

“What we have done in the last two years is to introduce the ¢2 coin. You would expect that, eventually, it would more or less play the role that the ¢2 note is playing.”
