KNUST Basic School resumes teaching and learning after suspension for about 2 weeks

Academic activities have resumed at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) Basic School following the suspension of the industrial action by the university’s senior staff and two other unions.

Teaching and learning at the school came to a halt following the strike initiated by the Senior Staff Association of Public Universities in Ghana (SSA-UoG), the Tertiary Education Workers Union of Ghana (TEWUG), and the Federation of Universities Senior Staff (FUSSAG) on February 1.

The unions decided to suspend the strike on Friday, February 9, 2024, after holding discussions with the government and the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) regarding the conditions of service of their members.

However, despite the suspension of the strike, members of the labour unions have made it clear that they retain the option to reinstate the strike if the employer fails to fulfill its obligations as agreed upon.

Josephine Philicity Apenyo Adom, the KNUST local Women’s Commissioner of the Senior Staff Association of Universities of Ghana, emphasized that the strike has only been temporarily suspended and can be reinstated at any time.

She urged the government to expedite the resolution of members’ demands to prevent a recurrence of the strike.

“We have only suspended the strike, which means we can go back at any time, and the government has promised that we should give it some time to have everything resolved, and we are urging the government to do the needful.”

In the meantime, the Tertiary Education Workers Union of Ghana (TEWUG) maintains its stance of not rescinding its strike until all the grievances of its members are adequately addressed.

TEWUG reiterates its commitment to persist with the strike until the vehicle maintenance allowance is disbursed to its eligible members.
