The National Executives of the Teachers and Educational Workers Union (TEWU) have suspended their five-day old strike.
The decision was arrived at following a meeting with government over their concerns.
According to them, they have reached the agreement with government, hence the need to suspend the strike action.
A statement issued to that effect said “the TEWU national leadership in consultation with the local executives of the public universities hereby resolve to suspend the industrial action embarked upon by the union in demand for some conditions of service.”
It went on “we have come to agreement with government on the issues represented and therefore there is a need to suspend the strike action for now. We therefore call on our members on the various university campuses to resume work on the 19th of January 2021 while leadership continues to engage with government for he implementation of the agreement.
But some members including chairman of the KNUST branch of TEWU Charles Arthur have vowed to defend the strike.
