The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) has been on strike for a couple of weeks now.

According to the lectures whose strike has now held up academic activities in public universities in the country they want the restoration of their 2012 salary values.

This has created some form of disagreement between the lecturers and the government. After a series of engagements, the lecturers decided to withdraw their services.

This was around the same time the Senior Staff Association-Universities of Ghana (SSA-UoG) also embarked on a strike because they claimed the government had failed to respect and fulfil agreements with the association.

However, the SSA-UoG has called off the strike but UTAG is standing their ground.

Yesterday, it was reported that UTAG was considering ending their strike, however, hours later it was confirmed that members of the association are still on strike after a meeting with the government ended inconclusively.

Meanwhile, the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) has already appealed to UTAG to call off the strike action as this is affecting final year students the most.

Final year students were just weeks away from writing their last end of semester exam and be done with school with National Service to look forward to.

However, all that is now on hold while UTAG and the government tussle.
