The Education Minister, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum has assured students of Technical Universities that the government is working to address the concerns of the Technical University Teachers Association of Ghana (TUTAG) to get them back to work.
According to the Minister, government is committed to resolving the demands of the striking teachers.
Speaking in an interview, Dr. Adutwum was confident that the strike will soon end.
“We have had fruitful discussions. We have made appeals to them. They are also consulting their members, and we will hear from them soon.”
The Education Minister further stressed, “nobody wants students to be in class more than me, the Minister of Education. That is why I am saying we have made some considerable process, and I am very hopeful that the strike will be over soon.”
If we recall, on Friday, November 18 the leadership of TUTAG formally announced an indefinite strike noting that government has failed to deal with their conditions of service.
The union has thus insisted that government must honour its Codified Conditions of Service of members of which have been at a standstill since 2016.
