UTAG Strike: UTAG, govt meeting ends in deadlock again

A meeting between the government and the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) to find a solution to the ongoing strike ended in a stalemate on Thursday morning.

The discussion, according to reports, finished after three hours of deliberations aimed at addressing UTAG’s concerns.

“The parties were unable to reach any agreement,” Ministry of Education sources told the media.

As a result, the parties decided to go to court to have the case decided, according to them.

Last Thursday, the High Court (Labour Division) ordered the parties to address the matter and report back to it on Thursday.

Representatives from the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission, as well as the National Labour Commission, were present at the meeting headed by the Minister of Education, according to Dr Yaw Adutwum.
The meeting today follows one held last Tuesday, during which some progress was believed to have been achieved.
