"UTAG has not resolved its impasse with Government"-Prof. Ransford Gyampo

UTAG had been on a prolonged strike demanding among others better conditions of service but had to call off its strike to allow for negotiations following a Court Order. After deliberations last Friday with Government, Dr. Asare Asante stated that UTAG had come to some resolution with Government and that it was unlikely that the strike action with resume. Professor Ransford Gyampo has disagreed with an assertion by UTAG National Secretary Dr. Asare Asante that UTAG has resolved its impasse with the Government of Ghana regarding conditions of service for which UTAG went on strike.

“What we can say for now is that we have resolved the situation that we find ourselves in with our employer. So, as we speak, we have been able to settle our differences now. We have moved on”, the National Secretary of UTAG, Dr. Asare Asante Annor told Citi News in an interview.

But in a sharp rebuttal, Prof Gyampo described the assertion as a lie, calling on the media to speak to persons knowledgeable on the matter.

“This is a lie. Speak to those who know the issues,” he reacted to the news.

It is unclear what is factually inaccurate about Dr. Asare Asante’s pronouncement on the controversial matter. But the national executive council ( NEC) is expected to meet and provide the way forward after 13 out of 15 UTAG branches voted to reject the suspension of the strike action.
