TEWU begins strike Wednesday

The Teachers’ and Educational Workers’ Union (TEWU) is embarking on industrial action beginning Wednesday, January 13, 2021.

The purpose of the strike is demand better conditions of service.

According to the union, the action follows the failure of the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) to conclude negotiation on their demand.

The Local Union Chairman at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Charles Arthur, told journalists that “The onus lies on the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission. If they had paid attention for us to conclude the negotiations, such a situation would not have occurred.”

He added “We’re beginning a full-blown nationwide strike in all public universities in Ghana, it’s going to be simultaneous at 10 am.

“We’ll declare strike for every member to go home. As we speak now, we’ve not heard anything from fair wages and our decision still stands that Wednesday God willing we are embarking on an industrial action i.e. strike.”
