The University Teachers Association of Ghana(UTAG) has declared an indefinite strike over their book and research allowances. A statement from the group stated that the
decision was taken at a meeting held on
Wednesday at the University Of Education,
Winneba. President of UTAG, Dr. Samuel Ofori Bekoe said government is yet to acknowledge the numerous letters they have written on their 2014/2015 Book & Research Allowance hence
the strike. He further stated that they will not take part in any academic work until their demands are met. UTAG has over the years battled with government over similar demands. In 2014, the association embarked on a five- week strike to compel government to release their book and research allowances. Government has in recent times been hit with a
number of strikes from the public sector. The Teachers and Education Workers Union (TEWU) has also warned government that it may also embark on a strike if issues regarding their conditions of service are not dealt with soon.093b7d4ff4dadf4d382c910ec80e67c8_L-620x330
