Strike not the best option – Technical University Students tell striking Lecturers


The Ghana National Union of Technical Students (GNUTS) has asked Technical University teachers to use alternative means other than strikes to demand improved conditions of service.

Members of the Technical Universities Teachers Associations of Ghana (TUTAG) are currently on strike demanding improved conditions of service and other things.

This action, GNUTS said is not the best as according to him, continuous strikes will distort the academic calendar of Technical Universities in the country.

This admonition notwithstanding, Miss Deborah Asante Aboagye, the President of GNUTS has asked the government to address the concerns of TUTAG to get them back to the lecture halls for the resumption of teaching and learning the technical universities.

“I’m asking them to consider the situation at hand, although the government is not treating them well but they should find other ways of getting the attention of the government, if this is so, then we will plead with the government to hasten processes, stakeholders in charge should  also consider on certain things,” she said.

The leadership of TUTAG has declared an indefinite strike action which took effect on October 7th .

The strike action is to press home their demand for better conditions of service.
