The Teachers and Educational Workers’ Union (TEWU) says it will begin a nationwide strike to demand better conditions of service today Wednesday, 13 January 2021.
According to TEWU, the failure of the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission to conclude negotiation on its demand for better conditions of service has necessitated this action.
Charles Arthur, the local union chairman at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, said for “every public university, the members of TEWU will embark on a strike come Wednesday.”
Arthur told Asaase News, the strike will continue until their demands are met.
“We’re beginning a full-blown nationwide strike in all public universities in Ghana, it’s going to be simultaneous at 10 am.
“We’ll declare strike for every member to go home. As we speak now, we’ve not heard anything from fair wages and our decision still stands that Wednesday God willing we are embarking on an industrial action i.e. strike,” Arthur added.
