The Tertiary Education Workers Union of Ghana (TEWU-GH) has advised its members to maintain their industrial action despite a recent meeting with the government on Friday, February 9, 2024.
The strike, initiated on February 1, aims to secure the payment of members’ Tier-2 and vehicle maintenance allowance.
While the government has fulfilled its commitment to pay the Tier-2 allowance, the vehicle maintenance allowance remains outstanding.
TEWU-GH emphasized the importance of continuing the strike until the vehicle maintenance allowance is disbursed to eligible members.
In a statement released on Monday, TEWU-GH reiterated that the strike will persist until the government addresses the unresolved issue of the vehicle maintenance allowance.
The National Executive Council (NEC) affirmed its commitment to advocating for members’ rights and urged solidarity among workers until a satisfactory resolution is reached.
