UTAG, Fair Wages to meet NLC

The scheduled meeting between the National Labour Commission (NLC), on one hand, and the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) and Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC), on the other hand, is today, Thursday, January 13.

The meeting, called by NLC, was originally scheduled to come off on Wednesday but was delayed by 24 hours upon a request by the university teachers.

The NLC had raised concerns on Monday, January 10, when the lecturers began their strike, saying they should have complied with section 159 of the Act 651.

The lecturers had complained FWSC had delayed in releasing the report on the Labour Market Survey.

But section 159 would have caused the Commission to intervene immediately.

Notwithstanding, the NLC said it is committed to resolving the matter.

UTAG’s National Secretary Dr Asare Asante-Annor had contested NLC’s concerns on TV3 but assured that they will be at the meeting.

Each representative is expected to bring not more than two officials due to the coronavirus protocols.
