The Technical University Teachers’ Association of Ghana (TUTAG) has refuted claims that its members have been migrated onto the Single Spine Salary structure for public universities.
According to them, such claims are all false and have no merit.
A statement signed by the associations’ General Secretary, Joseph Danso, said although a letter from the Finance Ministry directed their migration to the SSSS, only their interim market premium was paid in September 2019.
The group also denied making any outrageous demands being purported by some government spokespersons and the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC).
The group also blamed the Government for their decision to go on a strike.
TUTAG also assured the public that its leadership are being very cooperative throughout the process of conversion and migration, adding that they have not demonstrated any ill fate so far.
TUTAG has also in the past said government had failed to place its senior staff and senior members in administration on the appropriate base pay, following the conversion of polytechnics into universities.
Speaking to Citi News, the Greater Accra Regional Chair of TUTAG, Dr. Ibrahim Zubeiru said government failed to heed to the demands of TUTAG thus the continuation of the strike.
