“Go Back To The Classroom” – Nugs Pleads Utag And Ssa-Uog

National Union of Ghanaian Students has pleaded the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) and Senior Staff Association-Universities of Ghana(SSA-UoG) to return to the classroom.

 

Following the strike action taken by the UTAG AND SSA-UoG which begins today August 2,2021, the NUGS executives are pleading with UTAG and SSA-UoG as their constituents are the receiving end.

In a press statement sited by PET TV GH, the association seeks to ask the teachers to go back to class as they negotiate with government.

“PRESS RELEASE (To all media houses)
STRIKE ACTIONS: UNIVERSITY TEACHERS ASSOCIATION OF GHANA (UTAG) AND SENIOR STAFF ASSOCIATION- UNIVERSITIES OF GHANA (SSA-UG) MUST RETURN TO THE CLASSROOM AND CONTINUE WITH NEGOTIATIONS BUT GOVERNMENT MUST ACT SWIFTLY IN THEIR RESPONSE TO THEIR DEMANDS NATIONAL UNION OF GHANA STUDENTS (NUGS) ADVICES PARTIES

1. With reference to the press release dated 28th and 30th July 2021, from both the University Teachers Association Of Ghana (UTAG) and Senior Staff Association – Universities of Ghana (SSA-UoG) respectively, registering their displeasure towards government’s continuous delay in honoring the full terms of their negotiations.

2.Both UTAG and SSA-UoG states emphatically in their releases that the government has always failed to respect the Rules of Engagement agreed by both parties to guide the negotiations resulting to an indefinite suspension slated for Monday, 2nd of August”

According to the statement issued by NUGS, they appreciate the service of teachers to the students and the nation and surely believe their cry is for a good course.

However, they disagree with the strike approaching considering the time spent at the house because of COVID-19.

“4. That notwithstanding. We disagree with the strike approach considering its effect on students. especially within the abnormal times we find ourselves in and the earlier obstruction of academic work by the global shutdown. UTAG and SSA-UoG must as an act of good faith towards students and government avoid an entrenched position in all dialogues to address their concerns.”

“5. We call on government to;
i. Respect all the Rules of Engagement agreed upon by parties
ii. Reach a compromise which will satisfy all parties as soon as possible.

6 We appeal to our lecturers to stay in the classroom for the sake of the future generation as they continue to negotiate with the appropriate quarters since Ghanaian students shouldn’t always be at the receiving end.

7. We implore all students to remain calm as the Union engages all parties involved for an amicable resolution.
Signed:
Yiadom Boakye Emmanuel (NUGS President)
024 697 0434
Kyeremeh Oppong Daniel (Sec.for Education)
054 316 9495
0553223028″

In conclusion, NUGS is asking all students to keep calm and as they engage all parties included to resolve the issue at hand.
NUGS therefore calls on government to fulfill her terms of agreement with UTAG and SSA-UoG and any negotiation should be speed up.
Julius Anthony (Gen. Secretary)
