The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) has declined to meet with the National Labour Commission (NLC) on Monday 7th February 2022.

In a letter dated 4th February 2022, UTAG through its Solicitor, K. Keli-Delataa indicted that it has received a letter of invitation to appear before the National Labour Commission but is unable to do so.

According to UTAG, the current situation demands that they meet with the government side in ironing out the remaining difference and then report back to the National Labour Commission.

“For this reason, our Client respectfully declines to honor your invitation to the meeting on Monday, February 7, 2022,” the letter concluded.

Meanwhile, the High Court in Accra (Labour Division) presided over by His Lordship Justice Frank Rockson Aboadwe has implored the leadership of the National Labour Commission (NLC) and the University Teachers Association (UTAG) to settle the matter out of court.

The court has given them up to February 10, 2022, to report back.
