University Senior staff in Ghana declared strike


State university Senior staff in Ghana have withdrawn their services with immediate effect.

On Thursday, members who have formed the Senior Staff Association-Universities of Ghana (SSA-UoG) announced the decision during a press conference.
Their decision came after the Teachers and Education Workers’ Union (TEWU) suspended a strike last Monday over similar concerns after an engagement with the government won the way forward.
However, SSA-UoG is protesting for the non-payment of their Tier-2 pension arrears, market premium, etc.

“I wish on behalf of the National Executive Council to announce the withdrawal of services with immediate effect,”
“For the avoidance of doubt members are required to lay down their tools until further notice”, this was according to an executive member of the group Mohammed Zakaria, who was addressing members in the Northern Regional capital, Tamale.

The Senior Staff Association has in the past complained of unfavorable policies from the government that are responsible for the deteriorating conditions of its members. Chidozie Stephen
