The Teachers and Educational Workers Union (TEWU) has agreed to go back to the negotiation table with the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) after a meeting with the Deputy Minister of Education, in charge of Tertiary Education, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa on Tuesday.
The union has been on strike for the past three days over discrepancies in salaries, impeding academic work in all the six public universities.
In an interview with Citi News the Chairman of TEWU, Peter Lumor indicated that although they have not called off their strike, their meeting with the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission on Thursday would inform their decision to either call off the strike or continue.
He said “I think the minister spoke with the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission and the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission said they will be inviting TEWU for a meeting tomorrow.”
He added that they (TEWU) appreciate the efforts of the Deputy Minister of Education Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa in trying to get their problems resolved.
Meanwhile, the Federation of University Senior Staff Association (FUSSAG) is set to meet Vice Chancellors Ghana over salary issues.
