Senior staff in universities in Ghana have served notice to embark on a strike on Monday, October 19, 2020 as part of demands for better conditions of service.

They made the announcement at a press conference in Accra Friday [October 16, 2020].

The National Chairman of the Senior Staff Association, Mr Abdul-Majeed Yussif explained at the press conference that the government has shown bad faith in ongoing negotiations concerning their conditions of service.

He mentioned the migration of the payroll of public universities onto the controller and accountant general’s payroll system as one of the examples of their concern.

“We reiterate our call to government to stop the subtle moves to do so. Instead, we strongly advocate for special dispensation akin to that granted to the security services and other public institutions with respect to salary administration.”
