The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Technical University Senior Administrators Association of Ghana (TUSAAG) has threatened to embark on a strike action effective December 6, 2022, if the government does not resolve all matters put before it.

In a statement jointly signed by the national president of TUSAAG, Mr. Joseph Mensah Oti-Asirifi and the interim general secretary, Mrs Elizabeth Amihere, TUSAAG said the strike is a result of the government and the Ghana Tertiary Education Commission’s “refusal” to address its issues and grievances timeously.

The unresolved issues are:

"1. Placement of Faculty Officers (at Technical Universities) on the appropriate level on the Allowances Schedule for office holders at Public Universities;

"2. Restoration of Fuel Allowance for Faculty Officers at Technical Universities;

3. Implementation of Entertainment Allowance for Faculty Accountants at Technical Universities;

4 Appropriate placement (levels) of Senior Member Non-Teaching at the Technical Universities on the PUSSGS;

5. Implementation of the Negotiated Internally-Generated-Funds and associated Conditions of Service;

6. Equitable implementation of the new fuel rates for Senior Members at Public Universities."

"The union said it would announce the withdrawal of services of all Senior Member Non-Teaching staff at all Technical Universities across the country, if the said issues remain unresolved by December 5, 2022", it added.
