The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) and the Senior Staff Association-Universities of Ghana (SSA-UoG) have embarked on two separate strike actions following labour-related issues.

At the start of the week, the two associations carried out their threat to strike over poor remuneration.

While UTAG is calling for the restoration of its 2012 salary values, the SSA-UoG said the government had failed to respect and fulfil agreements with the association.

As a result of their strikes, it has been difficult to run activities on various university campuses.

This month, a lot of universities were set to hold their end of second-semester exams. While some such as UPSA has gone ahead to hold their exams others have not been able to do so.

Today, the University of Ghana has sent an email to the university community informing them that the end of semester exam has been postponed.

It also said the resumption date for the Level 200 and Level 300 students has been adjourned.

Email notice from UG to university community.

The end of semester exam will reportedly take place after the two strike actions have been resolved.
