The Technical University Senior Administrators Association of Ghana (TUSSAG) National Executive Committee is due to meet with the National Labour Commission on Wednesday to discuss the postponement of its originally planned strike, while also encouraging calm on all impacted campuses.

The Association has previously threatened to strike over the apparent inability of several Technical University administrations to address retirement issues.

This judgment, however, was eventually reversed.

The President of the Association, Joseph Mensah, said during an interview on Starr FM that the outcome of the impending meeting with the NLC will determine the fate of the proposed strike.

He explained, “There has been significant progress towards resolving our demands. These efforts were initiated at the behest of the Minister of Education, leading to a directive issued to non-compliant institutions to address our concerns. Following this, we engaged in constructive discussions with the Vice Chancellors, and they have expressed their commitment to adhere to the stipulated conditions.”

He added, “It is due to these positive developments with the Vice Chancellors and other national stakeholders that we have opted to suspend the strike. By ‘suspend,’ we mean that we have received summons from the NLC. However, we are uncertain whether the Commission’s invitation solely pertains to the reasons behind our initially planned strike or if there are additional issues to be discussed.”

The Association is currently seeking clarity from the National Labour Commission on the scope of the meeting and the particular issues to be discussed, while emphasizing constructive talks with key stakeholders to resolve their concerns.
