Academic activities have resumed at the Koforidua Technical University (KTU) in the Eastern Region, after the Technical University Teachers Association of Ghana (TUTAG) called off its strike.
Information reaching hopeghananews.com indicates some lecturers last Friday were busily trying to get students in tune for their exams scheduled in days ahead.
Most of the students already cried onto authorities to postpone the exams to give them time to prepare emotionally and mentally.
This website can further confirm that the school’s management and TUTAG are making the counselling unit open to students who have been affected by the strike.
Ebenezer Nartey Nartey, Organizing Secretary for the KTU chapter of TUTAG said this is to help students get ready psychologically for the exams.
“We will advocate that a week is at least given the students for them to have a sound mind to write the exams. We want them to have the best of conditions so that when we test them, it doesn’t look like they are under duress.”
The Technical University Teachers Association of Ghana (TUTAG) called off its nationwide strike after the National Labour Commission (NLC) secured an interim injunction on the industrial action.
The association in a statement said its decision to call off the strike was a “demonstration of good faith which must be reciprocated by all stakeholders.”
TUTAG declared an indefinite strike on January 6, 2020, in protest of the non-payment of allowances due its members following the conversion of polytechnics to technical universities.
The Technical Universities Administrators Association of Ghana (TUAAG) also joined the strike demanding full benefits of migration onto the public universities’ salary structure.
