Court orders UTAG to suspend strike

The Labour Division of the Accra High Court has put an injunction on the strike by the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG).

The order followed an application for interlocutory injunction by the National Labour Commission(NLC).

Per the orders of the court, UTAG must suspend its strike until the final determination of an application by the NLC, seeking to enforce its orders for UTAG to call off its strike and return to the negotiation table with the government.

UTAG declared a strike on January 10, 2022 after government failed to review their condition of service since 2017.

The association amongst its demands has asked the government to restore condition of service agreed upon in 2012.
