Ghana varsity lecturers strike over pay disparities

19 January 2016, 14:13

Accra - Ghana's university teachers union downed tools on Monday, demanding that a resolution that was passed three years ago concerning salary disparities, be implemented, reports said.

According to Ghana web, the Teachers and Educational Workers Union (TEWU) described the backtracking from a 2013 decision by the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission as "unfair".

The agreement between the lectures and the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission was supposedly looking to "fix disparity in the salaries of both junior and senior staff members of public universities", the report said.

TEWU said the failure by the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission to deliver on its promise had forced them to take action, Joy News reported.

Chairperson of the union, Peter Lumor, said they were disappointed by the way their matter was being handled. 

"Almost three years now, we go and just when we are making progress Fair Wages comes out with another development and we go back. In May 2015 Fair Wages, TEWU and Vice Chancellors Ghana met to demand that the distortions that have been recognised be addressed," Lumor was quoted as saying.

He said the strike would be called off only if the commission met their demands.
