“You Can jail All of Us” – Prof. Gyampo Tells “incompetent” NLC
|Professor Kwame Gyampo|
The UTAG secretary elect of the University of Ghana,Prof Gyampo who is also popular in the Ghanaian political space,has descend hard on the Nation Labor Commission.
According to Prof. Gyampo, the Labor Commission over the years instead of helping labor,has been bidding for the government. He explained that, government always enters into agreement with labor and also fails to honor its conditions. When this happens the NLC will sit unconcerned until labor decides to go on strike,then the Labor Commission runs to court.
In a facebook post spotted by PET TV, the famous professor said “The Incompetence of the National Labor Commission won’t be tolerated any longer. Government enters into agreement with labor and violates its own agreement with Labor. The National Labor Commission won’t drag government to court. But when Labor strikes over same violation, the National Labor Commission is quick to go to court.
This is sheer incompetence laced with cowardice. How did the Austin Gameys handle labor industrial action? We have tolerated this incompetent tendencies for far too long. The real fight is just about starting. They can jail all of us!”
This post comes after the National Labor Commission tries to get the university teachers back to the classroom after many days of strike.
The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) and Senior Staff Association-Universities of Ghana (SSA-UoG) on Monday August 2,2021, embark on a strike action over a violation of contract by government. On Wednesday August 4, the association released a communique stating that, negotiation with government is in progress and are ready to call off the strike when government honors it promise.
