TUTAG accuses NLC of threatening teachers over ongoing strike

The Technical University Teachers Association of Ghana (TUTAG) has described as unfortunate threats by the National Labour Commission (NLC) that some members of the union risk losing their salaries if continues its strike action.
Speaking to SilverNEWS, the National President of TUTAG, Dr. Solomon Keelson urged the NLC to act as a fair referee.This is after the NLC directed the association to call off its strike saying the government had agreed to pay their allowances by January 29.
“The National Labour Commission has no business doing that; telling people that they will lose their jobs and threatening people. That should not come from the National Labour Commission,” he said.
He warned that such comments “means they [the NLC] are taking sides and we think it is unfortunate for the business.”
Dr. Keelson added that the NLC “should stay in the middle and should engage us and if you think that they have any cause against us, they can go to the court to enforce and that is better than a threat.”
