A clash unfolded between protestors and law enforcement persons during the ongoing strike action initiated by the Senior Staff Association of Universities of Ghana and TEWU (Teachers and Educational Workers’ Union).

The strike, aimed at addressing the concerns and demands of the Senior Staff Association and TEWU members, took an unexpected and tumultuous turn when a confrontation ensued between the police and demonstrators.

It is unclear what resulted in the clash, however, officials from both the Senior Staff Association and TEWU expressed their dismay at the turn of events. 

The crux of their protest lies in the government’s failure to fulfill commitments regarding their tier two pension and the abrupt cancellation of overtime allowances.

The effects of the strike have been felt on various campuses as most of the schools are not in operation. 

Teachers at the University of Ghana for instance deserted their office as the task force moved meticulously from department to department, ensuring total compliance with the strike.

Key areas such as the School of Graduate Studies, Internal Audit, Cash Office, and even the University Primary school have all been affected by the strike.
