The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) has said it is disappointed in the current injunction granted by the court against its strike. This is after the National Labour Commission (NLC) prayed the court to direct the lecturers to go back to the classrooms.

Speaking on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East, the C.K Tedam University for Technology and Applied Sciences (CKT-UTAS) branch President of UTAG, Dr. Jonas Bugase explained that UTAG was disappointed that the court chose to rule on NLC’s ex-parte interlocutory injunction rather than the substantive case before it.

“As our lawyers said, we thought that the court would rule on the substantive case before it, but the judge in its own wisdom thought that he would listen to the ex-parte interlocutory injunction for which he ruled, directing UTAG to go back to the classroom,” he said.

That being said, Dr. Bugase explained that UTAG, based on the advice of its lawyers, UTAG would explore any options that are available to it.

He insisted that while UTAG is looking to explore its options, government is still yet to make any offers that could appease members to either suspend or call off the strike.

Meanwhile, UTAG and the Ministry of Education are expected to appear before the Parliamentary Select Committee on Education. It would be recalled that when the Ranking Member on the Education Select Committee and MP for Akatsi North, Peter Kotoe Nortsu spoke on the same platform, he hinted that the Parliamentary Select Committee would meet UTAG after all else had failed.

The NLC and UTAG are expected back in court Tuesday, February 22, 2022.
