Technical University teachers to lose salaries, jobs over illegal strike



Teachers and Administrators in some Technical Universities in the country remain defiant as it continues the strike contrary to the order from the National Labor Commission (NLC).

On Friday, the NLC ordered the aggrieved teachers and administrators to immediately resume work as government agreed to pay their allowances by January 29. But checks by Starr News indicate that they are yet to do so.

The NLC has warned that if they continue what they term as an illegal strike, they may lose their salaries and subsequently their jobs.
Members of the Technical Universities Teachers Association of Ghana (TUTAG) on January 6 declared strike over what they say is the failure of the government to fully migrate them onto the single spine salary structure.

However, Empire FM’s Emmanuel Ohene Gyan reported from the Takoradi Technical University that there was no academic activity taking place.
Corresponding on the midday news he said “the place looks very calm. Just a handful of students scattered and learning and teaching is not going on.

Executive Secretary of the NLC Ofosu Asamoah speaking to Starr News said “the directive was they should go to the classroom. The directive is for the government to do its part by paying them. They have started. The validation has been done, they are working on it.

He went on “they have given a day that 29th it will hit your account. Which they agreed there and then at the meeting. You have now gone ahead to say you will defy the order and stay at home.”

Mr Asamoah cautioned “for as long as they stay at home, they are engaging in an illegal strike and government will not pay for an illegal strike. The law does not permit that. You will not be paid for work you have not done. And if they stay out for a period longer than the permissible period without a justifiable cause, they’ll lose their jobs.”
