Graduate Students impress upon government to expedite action to resolve UTAG’s agitations


The Graduate Students’ Association of Ghana (GRASAG), has appealed to government to take immediate steps to resolve concerns raised by the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG), and the Senior Staff Association of Universities of Ghana, so they could resume work.

Members of UTAG and the Senior Staff Association have been on strike since Monday, over conditions of service, bringing academic work to a halt on University campuses nationwide.

Due to the strike, UTAG members are not lecturing, invigilating, marking examination scripts, or processing examination results.

They have refused to resume work until their concerns are fully addressed by government.

Unhappy with the turn of events, GRASAG in a statement urged government to take immediate steps towards amicable settlement of the impasse.

GRASSAG in the statement said it is sad and disappointing to note that UTAG members and the Senior Staff Association-Universities of Ghana give off their best to train and groom researchers and future lecturers for the country’s intellectual fraternity, only to be met with deaf ears, when it comes to remuneration and conditions of service.
