The Teachers’ and Educational Workers’ Union (TEWU) will today Wednesday, January 13, 2021, embark on its intended nationwide strike.
TEWU says the failure of the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission to conclude negotiation on their demand for better conditions of service has necessitated this action.
In an interview with Citi News, Local Union Chairman at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Charles Arthur said;
“We are saying our conditions of service will have to be concluded because, in the conditions of service, we are supposed to be given other allowances which other entities get, but we don’t get at the moment,” he added.
In an earlier statement, the union said it would advise itself if the Commission failed to immediately conclude negotiation on the new conditions of service for the Unionised Staff of the public universities before the beginning of the academic year, in January 2021.
