The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) has called off its one-week long strike started last week after the government has promised to pay salary arrears.
The decision was taken after an emergency national executive meeting yesterday.
The teachers withdrew their services a week ago to protest delays in the payment of their ten months salary arrears.
UTAG president Dr. Anthony Simons told Joy News they will resume work Friday because government has demonstrated commitment to meet their needs.
“We’ve learnt that the money has been pushed right to the Bank of Ghana and Kumasi is about to pay, Winneba, they have already prepared their voucher payment and we believe that by…Monday some people will receive their money,” he said.
Dr Simons said given the government’s demonstrated commitment coupled with the incessant appeals from civil society groups, UTAG had decided to call off the strike.
