Vice-Chancellors of Technical Universities in the country have appealed to striking members of the Technical University Teachers Association of Ghana (TUTAG) and Technical Universities Administrators Association of Ghana (TUAAG) to resume work.
Members of the Vice-Chancellors of Technical Universities of Ghana (VCTU-G) made the appeal in a statement signed by Rev. Prof. John F. Eshun, Chairman of VCTU-G.
“VCTU-G observed with worry the effect of the strike on students and the academic calendar of technical universities. VCTU-G, therefore, appeals to the staff associations to resume work while negotiations continue with the government to address the concerns," the statement read in part.
TUTAG went on strike on 7 October 2019 after emoluments due them were not released despite a directive from the Ministry of Finance to the Controller and Accountant General’s Department with effect from 1 August 2019.
The Vice-Chancellors also appealed to the government to, as a matter of urgency, address the concerns of the agitated lecturers and administrators so academic activities can resume on campuses across the country.
