Dr Anthony Ayarkwah, the Koforidua Technical University (KTU) branch Chairman of the Technical University Teachers Association of Ghana (TUTAG) has stated that the association is considering suspending the strike action, but will not call the strike off indefinitely.
Indicating that, after a consultative meeting with stakeholders such as the Minister for Education, National Labour Commission they are deliberating on rescinding their decision to go back to teach.
Stating that, they will have a second thought if their demands are not met as deliberated.
He explained that, as a result of care and compassion for the students and parents, their members were ready to compromise, ’but for how long can this continue ‘he questioned.
He said this in an interview with Kwaku Aboagye Apenteng, on Koforidua based Freedom Radio’s ‘Yen Man’ show, when he spoke concerning the current state of the TUTAG strike.
‘We are engaging in a zoom conference with all our members across all the regions to decide on the way forward and we may have a second look at the strike action ‘, he stated.
According to Dr Ayarkwah, after engaging with the sector minister, he indicated that four of their demands could be met as soon as possible, however, other demands such as service of conditions will need time to ensure its realisation.
Noting that once the strike action is resumed, they will double up to be able to make up for the lost hours.
