The Management of the University of Ghana and the University of Cape Coast basic schools have staged indefinite strike following the closure of all the basic schools.
A statement by the schools authorities suggest the closure of the schools was due to an indefinite strike journeyed by the ”Senior Staff Association” of these tertiary basic schools, from kindergarten to the Junior high schools.
The strike embarking on by the ”Senior Staff Association” is due to over outstanding Tier-2 contributions of its retired members.
The University of Ghana stated, “We are compelled to defer because the ”Senior Staff Association” of University of Ghana has asked its membership to suspend all work scheduled until further notice.”
The Vice Chairman of the association, Mohammed Zakaria in an interview vowed that the association is remaining home till their grievances are well addressed.
It is noted that the association is demanding an improved condition of service, non-basic allowance and migration of the public universities to the Controller and Accountant General payroll statue.
The worrying issues which the association believes must be attend to immediately include medical care for the members and their families, study leave with pay among others.
