UTAG Strike: Education Committee of Parliament to meet with UTAG next week over standoff.

The Education Committee of Parliament has announced that a meeting with the leadership of the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) will be convened next week to find a solution to the union-government standoff.

This follows the High Court’s second decision for the National Labour Commission (NLC) and the United Trade Unions of Ghana (UTAG) to return to the negotiating table to resolve their differences.

The sides have reached an impasse on UTAG’s five-week strike.

Peter Nortsu Kotoe, the Ranking Member of the Education Committee, in an interview on citi news said, that the meeting will take place next week.

“At our meeting on Wednesday, we agreed to meet with UTAG. We aim to meet next week, listen to them, and hopefully bring the situation to a close by appealing to both sides.”

UTAG’s requirements

UTAG has been on strike since January 10 in an attempt to persuade the government to reinstate the 2012 service conditions.

A lecturer’s Basic plus Market Premium was set at $2,084.42 in the 2012 conditions of service.

The current arrangement, according to UTAG, has decreased the basic premiums of its members to $997.84.
