We are not returning to the classroom now || Legon UTAG president

The president of the University Teacher’s Association of Ghana (UTAG) Dr. Samuel Nkumbaan has emphatically stated that the aggrieved teachers (his colleagues) are not getting back to the lecture halls now, notwithstanding the court verdict on Tuesday, February 15.

The Labour Division of Accra High Court on 15th February,  2022 granted an interlocutory induction against the strike action by the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG).

This comes after the National Labour Commission filled an appeal for an interlocutory injunction to suspend the strike action by the UTAG.

However,  In an interview on Joynews with Evans Mensah on Top Story, he expressed that in light of his insight into the court’s procedures on Tuesday, the substantive matter has not been heard, and consequently he and his partners can’t continue their authority obligations.

“Unfortunately, the substantive matter was adjourned to Tuesday, then the injunction was granted. The order of the court, we are yet to get the certified copy and that will give us a sense of the specific details that the court is requiring of us as to what to do and what not to do”.

In response to the order by the Labour Division of the Accra High Court, Mr Evans stated that their attorneys will be in the situation to exhort them. So completely ,they can’t state right away that they are returning to the lecture halls tomorrow.
